mcq thumb

This Guidelines in Practice CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on managing migraine in primary care—you will then be prompted to reflect on your learning.

The questions, written by Dr David Watson and Dr Sandeep Sharma relate to their expert article, Accurate diagnosis of migraine is crucial to successful treatment and the latest SIGN recommendations on the pharmacological management of migraine. These questions have been developed for your CPD.

On completion of this activity, you should be able to:

  • recall what acute treatments are available for migraine, and which ones are most effective
  • know when prophylatic treatment is necessary, and what therapies are available 
  • explain the causes of medication overuse headache.
