Research funding: No external funding has been given to this project.
Conflict of interest: The authors declare no conflicts of interest of relevance to this project.
Informed consent: Informed consent was obtained from all participants.
Ethical approval: As a service and quality improvement project, the project fell outside the scope of research ethics review in Denmark. The DoloTest was part of the standard evaluation procedure carried out by psychologists at the Danish Headache Center. All central person registry (CPR) numbers were replaced with project identification codes (numbers and letters) to ensure anonymity. Only one psychologist (DKN) had access to all the patients’ CPR numbers. Two authors (MLW and MKN) had access to raw data in anonymized form during statistical analysis.Permission was granted by EvidenceProfile ApS, Denmark to use the DoloTest at the DHC for a trial period. EvidenceProfile ApS, Denmark did not receive any data from the project, and did not have any influence on the decision to publish results of the study. Neither the DHC nor the authors received monetary compensation from EvidenceProfile ApS, Denmark.
