Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be defined as a pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity symptoms that persist for at least 6 months to a degree that is maladaptive and inconsistent with developmental level.
It was once thought to only affect children, (5-10%), but it is now recognised as a lifelong disorder, with studies suggesting at least 3.4%
of adults are affected. In Australia GPs are the gatekeepers to referral and can also play a significant role in ongoing management of ADHD.
- Identify signs and symptoms of ADHD in general practice.
- Outline the diagnostic criteria for ADHD in children and adults.
- Consider pharmacological and psychosocial interventions for ADHD.
- Explore integrated care models for treating ADHD in children and adults.
GPs who attend this session will have a further opportunity for professional development or a clinical observership in the ADHD clinic at Nepean Hospital.
