Validazione e prospettive future

Abstract

A diary, filled in directly by the patient, is an extremely useful instrument for the physician, making it possible to piece together a detailed history which will favour a correct clinical-diagnostic evaluation. In view of the spread of the internet, and the growing tendency of patients to look for health-related information on it, we have developed an electronic version of the old paper headache diary. This new instrument furnishes the clinical information needed to diagnose a primary headache according to the criteria contained in the updated headache classification (ICHD-II) and is also a valuable resource during follow up. The diary has been added to the existing website www.retedeccellenzacefalee.it; it is easy to use and patients can access their personalised diaries using a password of their choice. Even though direct contact between the physician and the patient is still crucially important, web-based instruments are a valid source of support, increasing patient-doctor communication.
