Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is together with the BIMOH (NCT01314768) RCT study to evaluate whether training of GPs in the detection and treatment of medication overuse headache leads to improved care for these patients as compared to "business as usual".

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Medication Overuse Headache Behavioral: Trained counselling Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The present pilot study focuses on testing the logistics and the methodology of short intervention on a pilot group of GPs and their patients.

Due to low recruitment and the pilot study focus on logistics and methodology, the study was changed to not include a control (business as usual) arm. The outcomes were evaluated as "before - after" data and qualitative comments on acceptability and utility of the method. Primary outcomes were changed to be the acceptability and utility (previously listed as secondary outcomes) while secondary outcomes were headache days and medication days (previously listed as primary).
