Establishing Credible Professional Relationships With Our Neurological Colleagues: The Pearls And Pitfalls
Despite our positive (anecdotal) experience treating those with Primary Headache, the role of cervical afferents in Primary Headache remains controversial. One avenue to address this is the publication of credible, quality research. However not all of us have the facilities or are inclined to do research. Nevertheless, there is another way – establish close alliances with our neurology colleagues – we are all capable of this, but how do we go about it? One such alliance has been established in Rome between Riccardo Rosa and Prof Dr ‘Roby’. As part of the 2nd Watson Headache® Institute International Symposium Online, Dean will be interviewing Riccardo and Prof Dr ‘Roby’ as to how this professional relationship was achieved... what worked... what didn’t. This is something we all should be striving for.
Professor Dr Di Lorenzo is an internationally recognised researcher in the faculty of Surgical Medical Sciences and Technologies at Sapienza University of Rome specifically in the headache and migraine field (authored 151 peer reviewed national and international publications and abstracts resulting in 1402 citations and a H-index of 21) His recent focus has been the role of ketogenic diet in headache and migraine. In a ground-breaking study, Dr Di Lorenzo’s most recent (primary investigator) (2018) study, demonstrated significant amelioration of cluster headache symptoms after 3 months in patients following a ketogenic diet.
Despite his extensive research commitments, Dr Di Lorenzo continues to consult those experiencing headache and migraine working closely with our colleague Dr Riccardo Rosa.
