Migraine Patient Toolkit:
A Guide for Your Care

A migraine attack is not just a headache.

Migraine is a neurological disease that requires patients and health care providers to work together to manage symptoms such as severe head pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound that can cause significant disruption to patients’ lives.

SWHR’s toolkit is designed to help people with migraine navigate their care.

This patient-centered resource provides easy-to-understand information about migraine diagnosis and treatment, as well as tips on interacting with health care providers and health insurance companies to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Health care providers can use the toolkit to promote dialogue with patients.

Clear communication between patients and health care providers is critical for migraine diagnosis and treatment. The toolkit is designed to facilitate these conversations so people with migraine can get the most out of their health care visit.

What’s in the Toolkit?

The toolkit is a project of SWHR’s Interdisciplinary Network on Migraine, a diverse group of researchers, health care providers, patients, and health care opinion leaders working to educate and engage society about the burden of migraine.
