Use of self-acupuncture by people with migraine

Participants sought for survey exploring migraine and headache patients' views on the acceptability of self-acupuncture as a treatment option

What is the purpose of the study?

A team at the University of West London is conducting a survey about the acceptability of self-acupuncture for migraine and headaches.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, metal needles at various points on the body. Self-acupuncture involves patients being taught to insert a limited number of acupuncture needles into points on their own body in order to self-manage their own symptoms. 

What will the study involve?

The study will involve taking part in either a telephone or online interview or an online focus group. Participants can choose whether they prefer to participate in an interview or focus group. It is anticipated that interviews will last for between 30 and 45 minutes while focus groups for up to 60 minutes.

How to take part

The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. For further details, and to complete the survey, please follow the following link: https://uwl.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/self-acupuncture-for-headaches-and-migraines.
