Austin Health, with funding from EMPHN, are conducting a 12-month trial of a new arrangement for people living with migraine that involves sharing care between Neurologists at Austin Health and GPs in the community.
The Trial has been in progress since February 2023, and to date, a small number of participants have been identified and recruited from the existing waiting list for the Headache Clinic at Austin Health.
Austin Health is looking to boost participant numbers and would be happy to consider other potential participants from GPs in the catchment area. There is a $250 payment available for GPs (per patient) that they support on the Trial, to recognise the additional time required for the tasks associated with the Trial and the completion of two evaluation surveys.
Any GPs who have an existing patient living with migraine, who they believe could benefit from a shared care arrangement, should contact the Trial Coordinator, Phil Cohen, at Austin Health on 0458 888100 or by email email@example.com
