About this event

Join us for the Live Virtual “All Wales Headache Toolkit” Launch Event

Launch Event

An interactive 60-minute live virtual event for all primary and secondary care healthcare professionals who are involved in the differential diagnosis of headache, and the management of primary headache disorders.

During the event the panel will launch the All Wales Headache Toolkit. Developed in partnership with NHS Wales’ Neurological Conditions Implementation Group (NCIG), funded through the Bevan Commission Planned Care Innovation Programme, the All Wales Headache Toolkit comprises pathways to support frontline teams in the differential diagnosis of headache, as well as the management of some of the most common types of headache disorders in practice.

The event will be hosted on Microsoft Teams and the event link will be sent out on the morning of the event, but in case this has not been received you can use the “link to join event on teams” button below. Please note that until the event starts at 12pm on Friday 23rd June 2023, a “this live event hasn’t started” message will show.

The event will be recorded, and a video made available on the All Wales ICST Platform for those unable to attend the event live.
