Key messages

  • These authors examined recruitment data to understand reasons for participation/non-participation in digitally-based behavioral therapies for migraine.
  • Reasons for nonparticipation were largely unrelated to the technology, but due to traditional trial related inclusion/exclusion criteria.
  • Technology based interventions appear to be a method to engage patients with migraine in behavioral interventions when they might not otherwise engage in them.
