About

Vickie KarianI am a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner working in pediatric headache/pain medicine for the past 10+ years at a large Pediatric teaching institution in the Northeast.  I’ve been a nurse for 38 years and a PNP for 21 years.  I’ve started this blog to share some information and insights I have gained, with other providers and colleagues.

Over the years I have heard from patients, providers and NP students that headache is one of the most frequent reasons for a visit to a pediatric practice. And I have also heard that  many would like more pediatric-friendly information to use in their practice and to share with patients.

My goal for this blog is to provide timely information about caring for kids and teens with all kinds of headache, in a common sense, straight-forward way, full of authenticity and humor.

Our strength lies in our compassion for the families we care for, and our ability to work in relationship with them.  Join me in this journey to make life better for our kids and their families!
