Working With Migraine

Migraine is more than just a headache. Working With Migraine is a free program for MNPS employees and their family members of all ages who have, think they have, or are affected by someone who has migraine.

 

The 12-week program will teach you to:

  • Recognize how migraine can affect your life

  • Identify signs and symptoms

  • Understand triggers

  • Find effective treatment and self-manage

Once enrolled, you’ll receive the following via email:

  • A pre-program survey to help us understand how migraines affect you (this email will come from REDCap, VUMC's survey platform)

  • A series of four video sessions with supporting resources (one email every 14 days) that you can view at your convenience

  • A post-program survey to gauge the success of the program for participants

 

A bonus incentive

If you complete the Working With Migraine program and take both surveys, you qualify for the MotivateMe health coaching incentive, worth a $50 gift card.

Not sure if your headaches are migraine? Take this quiz.

  1. Do you have frequent or intense headaches? 

  2. Do your headaches usually last more than four hours? 

  3. Do you usually suffer from nausea when you have a headache?

  4. Does light or noise bother you when you have a headache?

  5. Does headache limit any of your physical activities? 

 

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, share this questionnaire with your health care provider who will evaluate you and may ask additional questions before making a diagnosis.
