Best Practices for ADHD Across the Lifespan

ADHD is a complex disorder with varying presentations of type and symptom severity. In order to properly manage ADHD holistically, clinical tools should be used to: 1) Assess the type and severity of symptoms, 2) Review specific areas of impairment in the patient’s life across multiple settings, and
3) Identify and explore any potential co-morbid diagnoses. This session will outline resources and recommendations for identifying an individual’s symptoms and levels of impairment in a clinical setting. The role of appropriate medication/dosage and ongoing treatment monitoring will be discussed.
Learning Objectives to Identify:
  • Key components when assessing for ADHD, including available tools
  • Questions to raise with patients in order to evaluate co-morbid disorders
  • Current pharmaceutical options for ADHD and related comorbidities
  • Techniques to communicate with other professionals to best support individuals and families
This 2-credit-per-hour Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 6.0 Mainpro+ credits.
