    Migraine Survey

    IRB-FY2018-733

    As part of a nationwide study, Clinvest and Missouri State University are working to improve the way in which we evaluate the impact of migraine on patient’s lives. We are looking for participants who can help shed some insight into the important factors patients use to evaluate their own response to treatment. This online survey will ask questions to find our more information about your migraines, treatment, and what you feel are the most important components to feeling better. It should take no longer than 90 minutes to complete the survey requirements.The end result of this project will be a preliminary questionnaire that will help patients and clinicians evaluate the impact of migraine on their lives.
