Children's Hospital research study on children and teens with headaches and migraine seeks participants

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Headache and migraine are as common in children as in adults, and just as disabling.

Researchers at Seattle Children’s want to learn more about children with headaches and migraines.

Seattle Children’s Hospital is leading a research study to understand the experiences of children and teens with headache and migraine. The research study is funded by the National Institutes of Health and is approved by the Seattle Children’s Hospital research ethics board.

This study might be a good fit for you if your child is between 11 and 17 years old and has chronic headache or migraine.

What happens in the study?

Parents and children will complete online questionnaires about their health, sleep, and mood. This assessment will be repeated 6 months after the first assessment is completed.

Both parents and children will receive $20 in gift cards for completing their questionnaires at each time point. All families may receive up to $80 in gift cards total to thank them for their time.

Participation in this study will take about 6 months.

Results from this study may help other children who have headaches and migraines in the future.
