Inter-professional teams can use this policy to improve the problem of migraine headache disorder by having a clear plan for diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. By setting out guidelines developed in collaboration with members from all disciplines involved – such as neurologists, primary care providers and pharmacists – team members can coordinate their efforts to identify triggers or risk factors that lead to migraines, provide evidence-based treatment options based on individual patient needs, monitor response to therapies and assess any potential side effects or interactions. Additionally, the policy can be used by inter-professional teams as an educational tool for both patients and other healthcare practitioners about what is expected of them when responding to cases of migraine headache disorder. This could include developing protocols around how best to support patients in navigating their symptoms; providing psychological/behavioral interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy; offering nutritional guidance; ensuring proper medication management; etc. Such measures could ultimately help improve health outcomes among those living with migraines while also working towards reducing stigma associated with these disorders.
