Welcome to the Danish Patient Organisation for Headache and Facial Pain
The Danish Patient Organisation for Headache and Facial Pain was founded in January 2013 for the collaboration between Danish patient associations representing patients with headache and/or facial pain.
The mentioned patient organisation presently represents the organizations: Migræne & Hovedpineforeningen (The Migraine & Headache association) and Trigeminus Foreningen (The Trigeminal-neuralgia association), and collaborates closely with the Danish Headache Center at Glostrup Hospital.
It is the aim of the Danish Patient Organisation for Headache and Facial Pain to establish a common general office which can contribute to the spreading of knowledge related to the different headaches and facial pain, which can organize information campaigns, and which can give guidance to the members of the participating organizations on their suffering and the respective treatments.
Inspired by the the European Headache Association, EHA, Hovedpinesagen will from time to time be enroling activities under the campaign named "Lad Hatten Vandre" with the purpose of creating more awareness on and support for Headache disorders. Se further details on the sub-page named EHA.
The primary goals of the Danish Patient Organization for Headache and Facial Pain are, in collaboration with the respective organizations:
- To support patients with headache and facial pain as well as their relatives
- To promote the collaboration between organizations representing patients with headache and facial pain
- To support research in disease mechanisms, prevention and treatment of headache and facial pain
- To counteract headache and facial pain through information, political initiatives within healthcare as well as through educational activities within this area.
- To assume tasks of common interest for patients towards the authorities
- To expand the general knowledge and raise awareness of diseases related to headache and facial pain
- To represent Denmark in International organizations with similar goals
