Headache Management Tools: MIDAS

MIDAS stands for Migraine Disability Assessment Questionnaire. It was developed to measure headache-related disability in three areas:

  • Paid work and education (school/college)
  • Household work
  • Family, social and leisure activities

By measuring the number of days missed in these activity areas due to migraine, the MIDAS tool can “improve migraine care by getting treatment right the first time a patient consults” with his or her healthcare provider.

The MIDAS score looks at the patients’ medical needs and helps the healthcare provider to determine the appropriate treatment at the first consultation.
