Care Pathway for the Management of Episodic Tension-type Headaches


Aim to understand the patient’s beliefs and expectations about headaches and address any misunderstandings (e.g., headaches are caused by serious pathology) or apprehension through education and reassurance.

Educate and reassure the patient about the benign and self-limited nature of the headaches and reinforce the importance of maintaining activities of daily living. Example Script.
