Primary headache disorders are a major cause of disability and a common reason people seek medical care. However, distinguishing a primary from a secondary headache disorder, as well as among primary headache disorders, is often challenging. Focusing on cluster and migraine, Drs. Jessica Ailani and Stewart Tepper provide criteria and strategies to overcome this challenge in the office setting. Insight is also provided to help guide treatment with evidence-based medications and devices, including new options. The real-world use of shared decision-making to individualize patient management and improve patient outcomes is brought to life through the use of whiteboard animation.
