Course Summary

Depending on their role and training, clinicians may or may not have primary responsibility to diagnose ADHD; however, often nurses and therapists contribute to the formulation of a diagnosis and plan of care through observation and interaction with children, parents and teachers and rely upon expert knowledge to use the right screening tool and methods to identify behaviors and social challenges associated with ADHD. The purpose of this course is to prepare clinicians to have knowledge of pediatric ADHD, methods of diagnosing associated disorders and behavioral outcomes, and to participate in interprofessional collaborative treatment that involves the patient and their family.
