Abstract:

This guideline provides recommendations based on current evidence for best practice in the diagnosis and management of headache in adults. It focuses on the more common primary headaches and addresses some of the rarer primary headaches which have recognisable features with specific treatments. Secondary headache due to medication overuse is addressed, as the overuse of headache medication can compromise the management of primary headache. "Red flags" for secondary headache are also highlighted.
