Event Organiser

Any clinician, who treats headache patients, begins to recognise patterns of accompanying health problems that appear more frequently than would be expected in the general population.

On this course, we will examine some of the clinical research into the conditions associated with headache and will provide guidance on how to formulate a comprehensive and collaborative approach for a patient with headache that addresses triggers, protective factors and treatment of co-morbidities. The course is fully online and runs for five weeks.
