Focus On:  Migraine in Women

Brought to you by Lippincott NursingCenter and HealthyWomen.org

The Migraine Research Foundation reports that, in the United States, 18% of women experience migraines, most commonly between the ages of 18 and 44 years. As clinicians, we must be prepared to ask the right questions when taking a history so we can identify certain red flag signs and symptoms, help women recognize potential triggers, and educate women about available treatment options - both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic. We are pleased to present this compilation of resources from Wolters Kluwer and HealthyWomen.org to help you provide the best care to women with migraines.
