Statement of Need

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can persist into adulthood, with a course that impacts brain morphology, cognitive and psychosocial functioning, and psychiatric and medical comorbidities. Subsequently, ADHD is associated with an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. It is imperative to acknowledge the whole-being impact of ADHD as well as the variable consequences of this disorder as the individual transitions from childhood to adulthood. This increased awareness should not only facilitate a better understanding of the seriousness of the condition but also provide an impetus to seek and implement treatment.

The first installment of this 4-part CME Outfitters series on ADHD will feature a discussion by Drs. Ann Childress and Thomas E. Brown on the extensive burden and impact of ADHD in children and adults. Additionally, the activity will include the use of a 3-D model highlighting the various systems and domains impacted.

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

  • Identify the extensive burden imposed by ADHD, including brain morphology, cognitive and psychosocial functioning, and psychiatric and medical comorbidities.
