Materials & Methods: In this randomized controlled clinical trial, 83 patients with migraine who were referred to the neurology clinic of one of Tehran’s hospitals in year 2009 Patients were divided into two groups by random allocation : 43 of patients in experimental group and 40 patients in control group. Data collection tools were demographic questionnaire, indices of migraine headache questionnaire and Orem cognition form, self care checklist and form of headache diary. Self care programs were held as four 30-45 minutes training sessions based on their self care needs for experimental group. Headache indices including migraine attack frequency, intensity and duration of attacks were evaluated by indices of migraine headache questionnaire before and after three months of self care program. Finally, headache indices were compared in two groups. Data were analyzed by SPSS 15.
