ADHD is no longer a disorder we can ignore. A meta-analysis estimates world prevalence of ADHD in adults to average 2.5% or higher, and is identified in 15% of patients attending general psychiatry clinics. Despite the publication of NICE guidelines, you may still have little experience or confidence in the assessment and management of the disorder.
This is a multi-speaker course chaired by Dr Robert Baskind, Consultant Psychiatrist at Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. This workshop will cover the principles of screening and assessing for ADHD in adults, distinguishing it from other mental disorder, and consid-ering the impact of co-morbidity. In addition, there will be training in the initiation and monitoring of pharmacological treatment consideration of other non-pharmacological interventions.
