Migraine

There are 6.4 million people suffering from migraine, with a total economic cost of $40 billion.

Migraines could cause nausea, loss of speech, and temporary blindness.

People who suffer from migraine have to suffer in silence due to the lack of understanding and the social stigma.

It affects their way of life, and interrupts their professional lives and productivity.

This makes migraine Australia's most underestimated and worst managed disability.

This course will help healthcare practitioners be informed with the latest clinical advancement for migraine sufferers.
