This article discusses the clinical features of the most common headache subtypes and helps elucidate the more nuanced features of newly recognized and frequently misdiagnosed headache disorders. The physical examination, recommendations regarding imaging, treatment, and the differentiation of primary from secondary headache disorders is discussed. Headache is one of the most commonly encountered clinical problems and this article aims to clarify diagnostic dilemmas and provide the most up-to-date recommendations with respect to treatment and long-term management.

Peter, have you got the full text of that article?  The abstract isn't as explanatory as it might be and I'm wondering what they mean by the 'ambulatory setting'?  Can you enlighten me?
