Service innovations: attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder – development of a multi-professional integrated care pathway

  • Isabel C. Burgess (a1)
Extract
AIMS AND METHOD

There is a need for multi-disciplinary input into the diagnosis and management of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We describe the development of a multi-professional integrated care pathway incorporating education, community paediatrics, child and adolescent mental health services and general practice.

RESULTS

Using parent-held documentation this pathway forms the bass of a community-based ADHD clinic.

CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS

A training programme for schools and health professionals raises awareness of the features of ADHD and covers appropriate management within schools.
