Welcome to The Headache Academy

Why learn about Headache Disorders?

  • Headache is one of the commonest reasons for patients to consult with a doctor. The Headache Academy feels the burden of headaches on patients, health services and society as a whole is extremely high. A wide range of effective treatments are available for most headache disorders.
  • Studies show that headaches are under-estimated, under-diagnosed and under-treated
  • Patient’s quality of life can be greatly improved by effective diagnosis and treatment. The aim of the Teaching Weekend is to help you to manage these disorders more effectively.
