  • 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
