- Distinguish and accurately diagnose both acute and chronic daily headache
so that appropriate treatment is administered
- Describe new and established treatments for patients with migraine,
tension-type, cluster, symptomatic and refractory headaches in order
to differentiate a plan of action
- Ask appropriate questions about external factors including quality
of life issues that might complicate treatment when presented with
a patient not responding well to current headache therapy so that
proper adjustment of treatment can be instituted
- Recognize who is at risk to develop chronic daily headaches in order
to institute measures to prevent them
- Identify patients who would be good candidates for preventative
and/or nonpharmacological therapies
