Primary care physicians; nurse practitioners (NPs); physician assistants (PAs); and other clinicians engaged in the care of patients with ADHD.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
Once thought of as a childhood disorder that primarily affected “disruptive” boys, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is now known to persist into adulthood in about two-thirds of cases, with an overall prevalence of 3%–5% of US adults. Although adult ADHD severely impacts patients and families, the condition remains underdiagnosed/misdiagnosed and inadequately treated. Since ADHD is frequently perceived to be a childhood disorder, its diagnosis in adults may not be considered. Validated tools are often not used to assess ADHD, which leads to missed diagnoses and impedes optimal monitoring and revision of treatment. Finally, patient communication is paramount to optimal treatment and clinicians need to become more comfortable with communicating and educating their patients.
In this activity, participants will be able to observe an ideal office visit to evaluate and treat a patient with ADHD, including a demonstration of shared decision making techniques. A variety of learner challenge questions will be included throughout the activity, along with peer benchmarking and faculty feedback. After the activity, participants will receive a series of three messages to reinforce key teaching points, based on unique educational gaps uncovered in the program.
