Description

Attend this conference on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to hear the latest research and find guidance that helps you provide the best care possible to patients with ADHD and related learning or psychiatric conditions.

The conference offers an in-depth review of the latest research and advances across dozens of conditions. Genetics in ADHD, new medications, treatment of comorbidities, health outcomes in ADHD, behavioral interventions and much more. In every session, our faculty focus on empowering you with insights to assess, treat and manage patients with ADHD and other mental health conditions. They lead you through in-depth sessions, answer questions during panel discussions and discuss ideas face-to-face after their sessions. This is important for professionals in mental health, primary care, pediatrics, psychology and nursing.

During this ADHD conference, there are also Curbside Consultation hours when psychiatry experts are available to address specific questions and clinical challenges.

In other words, our focus is more than to simply share knowledge. Our faculty strive to help you translate what you learn into enhanced mental health practice."
