Pediatric headache: clinical algorithm project Public Deposited

At last report, the national average wait time to see a pediatric neurologist was close to 9 weeks; at some medical centers the wait time may extend upward of 16 weeks (Children’s Hospital Association, 2012). The shortfall of U.S. child neurologists - which was 20% in 2012 - is expected to worsen by 2020 and persist through 2025 (Dall et al., 2013). Given these elements, the development of a comprehensive, time-efficient clinical algorithm developed to facilitate diagnosis and management of pediatric headaches at the primary level of care may increase provider access and reduce treatment delays.
