EFIC-EHF-LTB Joint Campaign against Headache
The EFIC has created a task force on headache, aiming to face through the European Joint Campaign against Headache the problems connected to the shared research, the multidisciplinary treatment of borderline forms and the shared education.
The Joint Campaign against Headache is promoted by EFIC, EHF and LTB through the action of Task Force on Headache and seeks to increase the value of headache global impact, research and education. For further information on this initiative, please visit the homepage of the Joint Campaign against Headache.
The Sapienza University of Rome has activated its 11th edition of the Master's Degree in Headache Medicine, for the Academic Year 2013-2014. Paolo Martelletti is the director of the Masters degree "Master in Headache Medicine" at Sapienza University of Rome. Find out more.
Editor's quote 2014
"The principal task that this year still lies ahead of The Journal of Headache and Pain is to bring the definition of refractory headaches up to date. For too long there has been a lot of utterance about it while their nosography was not systemized. So far few innovative neuromodulation practices have been widely applied to this subset of headaches, numerically limited but with a severe impact in terms of disability and social costs. Therapeutic results are before our eyes, still too scanty and often with weak scientific prerequisites. The lack of necessary evidence and its validation has made possible that, in the recent ICHD-3 β, refractoriness has found no room. Headache medicine plainly cannot worry about the many and neglect the corner of the few; thus it must always accept and follow the multidisciplinary approach, in this case even more. It would be a huge mistake to scotomize this subset of headache patients entrusting them only to striking case series without a scientific definition of refractoriness. This issue too must be investigated further in the course of the explorative work on refractoriness of headaches and its boundaries, building a bridge between refractory headaches and the broader concept of chronic pain."
