This review examines the findings of M. Oskoui et al. (2019) from their article, “Practice guideline update summary: Acute treatment of migraine in children and adolescents: Report of the Guideline Development, Dissemination, and Implementation Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology and the American Headache Society.” The authors completed an extensive literature review and created eight recommendations for the acute treatment of pediatric migraine focusing on medication selection, dosing, patient education, and patient counseling. By applying the evidence-based guidelines presented in this study, the urgent care or emergency department APN can confidently recognize and treat acute migraine symptoms and reduce patient risks from unnecessary testing and overuse of acute migraine medications. © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
