Caring for Children with ADHD
CME Credit upon completion
Did You Know?
Over the last decade, the number of children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has increased substantially. Primary care physicians play a critical role in the identification and treatment of ADHD. However, according to a study completed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) ADHD treatment guidelines are not always followed, and therefore outcomes may not be optimal. This problem can be exacerbated by disparities in utilization of care.
Increase your understanding of your role in assessing young patients with a potential ADHD diagnosis, and how to apply the most effective and age-appropriate multimodal treatment plan for children with ADHD.
