Outcome Measurement

Better management is supported by a validated, universally-accepted outcome measure, suitable for use in primary care everywhere. This is needed in interventional projects (Campaign objective 3).
Lifting The Burden has developed the HURT questionnaire. Its focus is on demonstrating that health care has achieved best possible rather than merely good effect in an individual patient, and to guide the health-care provider when it has not.
The process was begun at a Technical consensus meeting on headache treatment outcomes held at WHO's headquarters in Geneva in 2006. Validation studies are ongoing.
