The Migraine Toolbox is a free, comprehensive "how to" course in managing migraine. It covers the diagnosis and treatment of this disease. It includes downloadable practical tools - including questionnaires, medication guidelines for clinicians, a patient brochure and other resources. Those with migraine have many symptoms and therefore are seen by a wide range of medical professionals. This educational program will enable primary care physicians, nurses, pharmacists, gastroenterologists, and other non-headache specialists to care for these patients.
Migraine is a complex neurological disorder that is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. One out of every 9 patients suffers from migraine. Approximately 50% of people with migraine are undiagnosed and half of those diagnosed are unhappy with their treatment. For many, proper diagnosis often does not come until their condition becomes chronic. Migraine affects the entire body to include areas of medicine beyond headaches. Given that fact and its prevalence, we have developed an alternative to becoming a full-blown headache specialist to enable a wide range of clinicians to take care of their patients in managing this disease.
This educational series is supported by a contribution from the Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation.
