Children's Headache Training (CHaT) has been designed to improve knowledge and skills amongst health professionals who care for children and young people with headache. By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Take a headache-focussed history and undertake a relevant examination
- Classify headache based on this information alone (reducing reliance on investigation)
- Learn about pathophysiology of headache
- Know which elements of the history / examination mandate brain imaging or other tests
- Diagnose and manage migraine, migraine variants and other primary headache types
- Diagnose secondary headaches and take initial steps in their management
This is a 1-day course that will be delivered online in a virtual environment via zoom. You are expected to attend for the whole day. It is recomended that you join the course via a laptop or computer. Please make sure that you join with a working microphone and video.
The virtual course will be delivered in exactly the same way as the face-to-face course.
