More than just a headache, more than just prescribing drugs

The WHO consider migraine as the most disabling disorder worldwide in under 50’s. Migraine may present with headache but commonly headache is not the presenting complaint. Recognising migraine as a cause of non-headache symptoms increases therapeutic opportunities. This seminar will focus on differential diagnosis of headache disorders, non-headache manifestations and presentations of headache disorders, and new and merging ways to optimise successful treatment.
