For over 20 years, the Stiftung Kopfschmerz has been providing an online platform to inform the public about headache disorders. It is important to them that new research results are not only accessible to experts, but also to those affected and their relatives.
With their information and education service, they want to improve the communication between physicians and patients and the education of the population about the possibilities of headache therapy. The information on their website should therefore support, but not replace, the existing relationship of trust between the patient and the physician.
In collaboration with its scientific advisory board and on the basis of current studies, the headache foundation will also make its own assessments of therapeutic approaches and make recommendations for this. In addition, the public’s awareness of the problems of affected people with their often long-term search for help is a central task of the Foundation’s headache.
