Awareness and diagnosis of migraine in a multi-country cohort of migraineurs

Takeaway

  • An interview study of migraineurs found low levels of migraine awareness and high rates of previous misdiagnosis by both general practitioners (GP) and specialists.

Why this matters

    Lack of awareness of migraine among migraineurs and those who treat them leads to unnecessary risk and medical costs and can prevent or delay treatment; additional or changes to the promotion of migraine awareness should be evaluated.
