Headache and migraine

Headaches can affect everyone from time to time but pharmacy staff need to know which types may need more careful consideration.

OTC

Everyone will experience a headache from time to time, so pharmacy staff need to know what to be aware of in order to distinguish those that are manageable with self care measures and OTC remedies from pain that needs more careful consideration.

Learning objectives

  • Understand why headaches occur and how they are categorised 
  • Know the symptoms and advise on the management of common types of headache
  • Recognise the symptoms and signs that warrant referral for medical advice.
