Migraine and quality of life: psychological considerations
© Springer-Verlag Italia 2001
In the past decade researchers have become increasingly interested in quality of life as it pertains to headache, in particular migraine. A number of general health or well–being measures and migraine–specific measures have been investigated thus far. This paper briefly reviews investigations conducted to date, argues that measurement consolidation is needed for certain extant approaches, discusses potential uses and interpretations of derived measures, and points out alternative models and approaches that merit further exploration.
