To help improve patient care, The American Headache Society (AHS) recently released five practices that health care professionals and patients should avoid or question regarding headache treatment. The guidelines and considerable information about them appeared in the November-December issue of Headache
The list was created as part of the Choosing Wisely initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation, which stresses the importance of physician and patient conversations in improving care and eliminating unnecessary tests and procedures. The Choosing Wisely
recommendations should not be the final word in decisions about treating headache disorders or any other condition, experts say. Instead, they are intended to foster conversation about what is — and is not — appropriate and necessary treatment.
