They reviewed barriers to the use of nondrug treatments from the perspective of both patients and health care providers and identified opportunities to overcome these barriers. The roundtable participants represented a variety of interests and experience related to migraine and included neurologists, nurse practitioners, a psychologist, a sleep specialist, and several women with migraine disease who shared insights into their migraine journeys.
