Ocean’s Eleven: Who’s part of your Migraine/Headache Disorders care team? What essential roles still need to be filled?
My current pain clinic team at my local hospital includes my doctor, a nurse and vocational councillor. Outside of the hospital I also see a physiotherapist very often, and my local pharmacists always give me a helping hand in handling all of my medications..
My paediatric pain clinic had the best approach I’ve seen. At every appointment I had my pain specialist, a nurse practitioner, clinical therapist and a physiotherapist. Having them at every appointment helped them gauge my progress, and sugest new treatment options.
Currently, I am quite happy with my treatment at the adult hospital.. I’ve definitely had a few hiccups with them, but I know they are giving me the best care possible!
