The Headache and Migraine Sufferers Bill of Rights (cont)

December 5, 2009 by dean · Leave a Comment 


A balanced approach to research is required

The last 2 ‘bills’ read:

“The headache sufferer has the right of access to an authorised healthcare provider and to relevant treatment, regardless of age, sex, race, state of health and economic standing and regardless of the geographical, cultural and economic circumstances of his/her community.”


“The headache sufferer has the right to expect society and the medical profession to conduct research in the field of headache to improve the understanding and treatment of headache in the future.”

The only issue I have is with conducting research – if research resources investigating the role of the neck equalled that which is put into drug solution then perhaps a more balanced and effective approach finding a would result.
