Headache and Migraine Nurse SpecialistLibby has worked in the field of patient education for nine years, having specialised in reproductive health, nutrition and headache neurology. Libby works with the team of doctors at Neurology Network Melbourne to contribute to the management of patients with severe headache. Typically she is involved in pre-consultation education, which takes place via a scheduled telephone call.
During the Nurse telephone interview, patients will be asked health and potentially sensitive personal information. These calls will be scheduled so patients are asked to ensure that they are in a position to answer such questions, preferably in a quiet, private area. Treatment plans, documentation of symptoms and medication education is given during the telephone nurse consultation. This is not intended to substitute for medical consultation and diagnosis which will take place with the Neurologist at a different, scheduled time.
