AAN 2024 | Defining special populations in headache medicine

Larry Charleston IV, MD, MSc, FAHS, from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, Grand Rapids, MI, proposes a definition for special populations in headache medicine utilizing frameworks from other services such as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The working definition includes populations in the US with headache disease who experience increased barriers to healthcare equity in their care or outcomes of their headache disease, compared to the general population. It also covers populations who are underrepresented in headache disease research. Prof. Charleston IV discusses some proposed groups of special populations in headache medicine, some of which include African Americans, American Indians, Latin or Hispanic individuals, children, the elderly, homeless individuals, LGBTQ+ individuals, refugees, and pregnant women. This interview took place at the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting 2024 in Denver, CO.
