5th European Headache and Migraine Trust International Congress (EHMTIC) 2016 Glasgow

  • Conference Call
  • Wel­come to the 5th Euro­pean Headache and Migraine Trust Inter­na­tional Con­gress (EHMTIC) 2016, in Glas­gow, UK. This inter­na­tional event is aimed at neu­rol­o­gists, physi­cians, sci­en­tists, researchers, and health­care pro­fes­sion­als with an inter­est in migraine and headache dis­or­ders and will com­mence on Sep­tem­ber 1518, 2016.

    Con­gress Idea

    Our four day pro­gramme is built on basic and clin­i­cal sci­ence con­tent. We will be cov­er­ing the lat­est avail­able research, ther­a­pies, and devel­op­ments from inter­na­tion­ally recog­nised lead­ers in the field. Our aim con­tin­ues to be pro­vid­ing a bet­ter under­stand­ing of migraine, trigem­i­nal auto­nomic cepha­lal­gias, tension-​type headache and other headache dis­or­ders. Par­tic­i­pants will gather new sci­en­tific evi­dence and under­stand­ing that will improve diag­no­sis and treat­ment for patients.

    Poster pre­sen­ta­tions will con­tinue to be a key fea­ture of EHMTIC 2016 and the pro­gramme has been planned to allow ample time for poster view­ing and chaired dis­cus­sions with an empha­sis on inter­ac­tion across all ses­sions. We will fea­ture the best of our devel­op­ing researchers in the New Sci­en­tist lec­tures, an oppor­tu­nity to hear what is hap­pen­ing at the absolute cut­ting edge.

    Teach­ing Courses are sched­uled prior to the start of the main pro­gramme. They will include offer­ings focused updates for pri­mary care prac­ti­tion­ers and oth­ers with spe­cial inter­est in the field of headache; an edu­ca­tional case-​based inter­ac­tive ses­sion aimed at clin­i­cal staff to update their knowl­edge and learn about new ther­a­pies; and a course aimed at trainees inter­ested in novel tech­niques and devel­op­ments in migraine research.

    Con­gress /​Abstract Topics

    Par­tic­i­pants inter­ested in pre­sent­ing an oral or poster pre­sen­ta­tion are invited to sub­mit an abstract. All abstracts will undergo peer review by the Abstract Review Com­mit­tee and may be accepted​for either oral, poster pre­sen­ta­tion or rejected.
