Strategies and tips for treating non-migraine headaches

November 22, 2023 | 8:00 am to 9:00 am

It can be difficult to pinpoint the cause of a non-migraine headache and symptoms can be vague. If left untreated, headaches can lead to poor mood, sleep and a reduced quality of life. Missed red flags can lead to significant harm to patients such as stroke and malignancy. How can family doctors address a patient’s headache to help improve their quality of life and prevent overreliance on pain medication? Connect with our panel as they share their personal experiences in treating patients with non-migraine headaches. We’ll share resources and practical tips to help support you and your patients.
