A Migraine Toolbox

A practical approach to diagnosis and treatment

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.
