Description

This free, CME-certified webinar helps you effectively assess children and adolescents who may have ADHD. Pediatric primary care providers (PCPs) assess and treat the majority of young patients who have ADHD. Yet it can be difficult to diagnose due to complex comorbidities. Early identification of ADHD is critical in order to optimize health outcomes. The content of this webinar focuses on epidemiology and public health impact of ADHD, different types of ADHD and the implications for treatment, and genetic, environmental, and neurobiological underpinnings of ADHD. This webinar is presented by Project TEACH, a program funded by the New York State Office of Mental Health.
