Abstract

The Italian Law 38/2010 assures the citizens' right to have access to palliative care and to antalgic centres in case of either oncologic or non-oncologic pain. It represents an opportunity for headaches' managements in Italy, promoting the creation of regional and national networks of headache centres and local diagnostic and therapeutic clinical pathways for patient affected with headache. This law should also support collaborations between both antalgic and headache centres networks in order to promote innovative or experimental procedures for chronic and refractory headaches. Moreover, art. 10 of the Law 38/2010 may facilitate the prescription of many headache prophylactic drugs but it may be a risk for opioids overuse headache. Educational programs and the Continuous Professional Development for physicians and all different healthcare professionals in headache area are warranted.
