110005 - MOTIVATE: The behavioural aspects of medication-overuse headache

  • : Online

 

A 30-min online activity designed to improve knowledge in the behavioural aspects of medication-overuse headaches.

Relevance to General Practice

Migraine is frequently recognised in the Australian primary care setting, with about 12.3% of patients reporting three or more migraine episodes per month. (Stark et al. Med J Aust 2007;187:142-6) Patients having frequent episodic migraine or chronic migraine are at risk of developing MOH. General practitioners should therefore learn to recognise these conditions, screen for medication overuse and have a strategy for dealing with frequent primary headache disorders to minimise the risk of medication overuse. (Stark et al. Med J Aust 2016; 205: 283)

Learning outcomes

  • State why MOH can be considered a biobehavioural disorder
  • List basic psychological issues that contribute to MOH
  • Put in place a system for screening patients with MOH for possible psychological comorbidities such as depression and anxiety disorder
