In 2012, the Board of the NHF recognized the growing number of allied health care practitioners, along with primary care physicians, who had gained experience in the diagnosis and treatment of headache. A competency examination was then developed for eligible candidates.
The goals of the AQH are to establish the standards for headache practice and to help those with migraine disease and headache disorders in locating clinicians who can provide optimal headache-related health care. As a resource to those seeking the full list of AQH professionals, including Biel, the NHF has provided a directory that can be found at: https://headaches.org/resources/healthcare-provider-finder/
