Diagnosis poster

The NICE guideline on headaches makes recommendations on the diagnosis and management of the most common primary headache disorders in young people (aged 12 years and older) and adults. Healthcare professionals can find the diagnosis of headaches difficult, and both people with headaches and their healthcare professionals can be concerned about possible underlying causes. Improved recognition of primary headaches will help the generalist clinician to manage headaches more effectively, allow better targeting of treatment and potentially improve quality of life and reduce unnecessary investigations for people with headache.

This poster has been adapted from the table in section 1.2 of the NICE guideline on headaches. This poster has been developed to support clinicians in diagnosing primary headaches.
