||This systematic review aimed at reviewing the effectiveness of therapeutic patient education for migraine, It identifies 14 randomized control trials for a systematic review, of which 9 are included in the meta-analysis. The authors find moderate-strong evidence for intermediate-term effectiveness of patient education on headache frequency, headache disability and quality of life. There is no evidence, however, for short- or intermediate-term effects of patient education on self-efficacy or depressive symptomatology.
