Research Project into Psychological Factors in Migraine

16 December 2019

The Centre for Pain Research and National University of IrelandGalway (NUI Galway) are conducting a research project in Ireland and the UK into psychological factors in migraine. The research is intended to help develop better therapies to help people manage their migraine.

The study is open to adults with migraine in Ireland and the UK who have seen a health professional for their migraine.

The study involves a one-off online survey with 11 questionnaires, estimated to take 30 minutes to complete. The survey includes 1 demographic questionnaire, 2 migraine questionnaires, and 7 psychological questionnaires.

This study includes psychological questionnaires that measure adverse childhood experiences, attachment in general relationships, dissociation, depression, anxiety and how you manage emotions. You might feel, while you are answering it, that this survey raises difficult thoughts or feelings for you. In this case we would advise that you contact your GP and any of the free services that are available at the beginning and end of the survey. If you decide to take part you are still free to withdraw at any time and without giving a reason. A decision to withdraw at any time, or a decision not to take part, will not affect your rights in any way.

If you would like to take part, please complete the survey here.

If you have any questions please contact Iain Mays at i.mays1@nuigalway.ie.
