Hot topics in headache (2 CPD hours)

This interactive module uses five case histories to update you on developments in the primary care management of headache, including new NICE guidance and research on migraine prophylaxis and the treatment of tension-type and cluster headaches.


To improve your understanding of:

  • The diagnosis of primary and secondary headache
  • Red flags in headache
  • Acute and prophylactic treatment for tension and cluster headache
  • The role of topiramate and botulinum toxin in prophylaxis

In this interactive module, you will learn as you work through real-life primary care patient scenarios. You will be assessed before starting the module and again at the end, to gauge how your knowledge has improved.

You don’t have to complete the whole module in one sitting. You can break off at any point mid-module and pick up again where you left off by pressing the Resume Module button alongside the module title in your Pulse Learning CPD log.
