Nurse Practitioners Advanced Training in Headache


Nurse Practitioners (NPs) play a key role in providing access to care and improving the health outcomes of patients. Recognizing the importance of NPs in comprehensive headache and migraine management, the NPath Program will focus on advanced training to enhance skills and expand competency. Through our planned activities, the NPath program will engage a network of NP’s who are committed to improving patient care and assisting with access to effective medication for patients across Canada.

NPath Program

This innovative program offers multiple opportunities for engagement with Canadian headache experts and NP colleagues across the country. Through a dedicated online portal, NPs will have access to self-directed learning modules, knowledge evaluation tests, expert lead courses and a certification program recognizing their commitment and advanced training in headache management.
