What is Migraine?
Migraine is not just a headache, it's a complex neurological disease that impacts more than 1 billion people worldwide. In this medical animation by Nucleus Medical Media, made in collaboration with AMD, you will learn possible causes of this disease and what happens in the brain during an attack.
Migraine Resource Kit for Health Care Providers
Migraine disease is a leading cause of disability in the US and impacts approximately 40M Americans, half of which are undiagnosed. It’s imperative for clinicians to stay updated about a disease that impacts one in nine patients.
The Association of Migraine Disorders is helping equip health care providers with information on how to diagnose and treat migraine patients through the Migraine Resource Kit. Resources include an online CME course and FREE printed materials such as patient brochures (English & Spanish), an exam room poster, medication dosing aids, treatment guides and migraine trackers.

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.
