NICE Guidance - September 2012

The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has published new guidance for the month of September 2012. This month there is one clinical guideline that impacts upon primary care.

The Headaches clinical guideline discusses the diagnosis and management of headaches in young people (aged 12 years and older) and adults. In particular the guideline covers tension-type headache, migraine (including migraine with aura and menstrual-related migraine), cluster headache and medication overuse headache. Diagnostic criteria are specified for each headache type and treatments are suggested, where appropriate, for acute episodes and prophylaxis.

The publication of this guideline has been reported in the media (BBC) with the main focus of the articles being medication overuse headaches.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this month's new guidance and implement any necessary changes to practice.
