Newly validated headache assessment tool

Takeaway

  • The fourth Nord-Trøndelag Health Survey (HUNT4), a patient questionnaire to assess for headache is a valid and useful tool for diagnosing multiple headache types.

Why this matters

  • HUNT4 is a more convenient and cost-effective way of diagnosing headache in comparison with an expert-driven interview, the current ‘gold standard’ for diagnosis.
