Statement of Need

Parents and caregivers of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), as well as adults with this condition, often indicate limited knowledge of the available therapies for ADHD, particularly pharmacotherapies for which they often express concern about diversion or addiction. However, providing parents, caregivers, and patients with detailed information can mitigate those concerns and enable them to be active participants in treatment planning. Likewise, as treatment nonadherence is common in ADHD management, it is imperative to educate parents, caregivers, and patients about its negative impact on psychosocial functioning and quality of life.

For insight on ADHD medication profiles, behavioral therapies, and supportive strategies to enhance treatment adherence, join our faculty experts for this fourth installment in the CME Outfitters series “ADHD Can Be a Moving Target: Equip Yourself with the Tools to Detect and Manage ADHD to Reduce Its Burden.”

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Educate patients and caregivers about the available ADHD medication profiles, behavioral therapies, and significance of adherence to therapy.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists specializing in psychiatry and/or pediatrics
