Sepsis in the Older Patient


Audience: GPs (all grades)

Although most headache is benign, patients and doctors always worry about the rarer but serious secondary causes. This webinar will tackle the problem, and provide tips on how to recognise the more sinister headache syndromes as well as focussing on the more common, if benign, forms of headache. I will provide tips on how to assess patients with headache, who needs rapid referral and investigation, and who can be reasonably reassured.

By the end of this session, you will:

  • Have a diagnostic framework of headache, including the primary and secondary headaches
  • Know the right questions to ask when faced by a patient with a severe headache
  • Be able to identify which patients need immediate/urgent referral
  • Be more familiar with the less common “benign” headache syndromes such as cluster, sex related headache, hypnic headache, primary stabbing headache etc
