Course Overview

This practice-focused module provides a structured and comprehensive overview of headache pathophysiology, diagnosis and management for practitioners. It will equip practitioners who provide clinical care for patients with headache with the skills, knowledge and understanding to more effectively assess, monitor and manage this condition.

Please note: In your programme you may sometimes be expected to role play and engage in simulated clinical scenarios with other students, such as the practice and observation of practical skills in physical contact with other students. For some specific practices, this may necessitate modification of dress - e.g., to shorts and t-shirt. These activities will be conducted in a professional, safe, respectful and culturally sensitive way, under the supervision of academic staff, according to a defined protocol. This does not apply to Clinical Pharmacy practice modules as all of these modules are distance learning.
