American headache society


The American Headache Society (AHS) is an expert society of health care providers dedicated to the study and treatment of headache and face pain. American Headache Society brings together physicians and other fitness providers from various fields and specialties to share concepts and developments about headache and related conditions. The American Headache Society was founded in 1959. It is the nation's professional association for those interested in the study and management of headache and face pain. The Society's objectives are to encourage the exchange of information and ideas concerning the causes and treatments of headache and related painful disorders. Educating physicians, health professionals and the public and encouraging scientific research are the prime functions of the Society. American Headache Society activities comprise an annual scientific meeting, two comprehensive headache symposia, publication of the journal Headache and sponsorship of the American Council for Headache Education (ACHE).

Other objectives of AHS

The educational objectives of AHS are to carry on to improve the knowledge, skills and professional performance of physicians, psychologists and other health professionals in the care of patients with head, neck and or facial pain by providing a forum for presentation of free scientific communication on research and clinical practice or providing educational symposia or by improving education in medical schools and residency programs and by identifying and increasing new educational initiatives. The information is proposed primarily for health care professionals. Headache sufferers and other interested non-professionals may desire to consult the information offered by the AHS-affiliated patient organization, the American Council for Headache Education (ACHE).

About the ACHE

The American Council for Headache Education (ACHE) is a nonprofit patient-health professional partnership committed to advancing the treatment and management of headache and to raising the public awareness of headache as a valid, biologically based illness. ACHE's educational mission reaches out to health career policy makers, employers, opinion leaders, at the same time as to headache patients and their families. Our aims are to empower headache sufferers through education, and to support them by educating their families, employers, and the public in general. We sponsor individualized treatments, which combine the best of traditional medicine, alternative medicine, drug, and non-drug therapies. We do not recommend any specific approaches or medications. Through education in the causes and treatment of headache, sufferers can be empowered and prepared to seek effective therapies and knowledgeable health care providers who can aid them in achieving better quality of life.
