Spotlight on migraine services and access to appropriate medicines toolkit
Optimising patient involvement to improve migraine patient outcomes
Over the last few years a lot has been achieved towards better meeting the needs of those living with migraine and yet more still needs to be done to address the considerable burden of migraine.
In partnership with patient organisations, including the European Migraine and Headache Alliance (EMHA) and funded by Novartis, three resources were developed. The aim of the resources was to support patient organisations in getting involved in improving migraine services and access to appropriate medicines.
Who developed the Toolkit?
This resource was created by KYNE, a health communications agency, in partnership with the European Headache Alliance (EMHA), the European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA) and Migraine Action (MA). The development of the Toolkit was funded by Novartis. Novartis also retains responsibility for ensuring that the content of the Toolkit adhere to all relevant regulations.
