Welcome to the 5th European Headache and Migraine Trust International Congress 2016, in Glasgow. This international event is aimed at neurologists, physicians, scientists, researchers, and healthcare professionals with an interest in migraine and headache disorders.
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.
We will finish with a public session for patients with migraine and headache disorders, providing an overview of the Congress presentations.
We are planning an invigorating programme and encourage you to attend all types of sessions to learn about the latest developments from our healthcare partners.
On behalf of the International Scientific Advisory Committee, we would like to express our grateful thanks to the exhibitors and generous sponsors of the Congress, the EHMTIC Board, The Migraine Trust, EHF Board, the abstract reviewers, session chairs, the presenters who are sharing their research and experience with us and to our delegates who continue to support the Congress.
On behalf of the Organising committee, we invite you to join us in Glasgow for a memorable and inspiring event,
Peter Goadsby and Dimos Mitsikostas
