Statement of Need

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that varies in its symptom presentation and functional impact across the lifespan. Although it is now recognized that ADHD may persist to adulthood, it often goes undetected in adults, being misdiagnosed as other psychiatric and frequently comorbid conditions. Diagnosis is complicated in that symptom presentation may vary as the individual transitions from childhood to adulthood. The use of diagnostic criteria and evidence-based tools can help to differentiate the diagnosis of ADHD in adults, particularly in the context of comorbidities. This is imperative because an accurate diagnosis not only facilitates early intervention but also offers a sense of relief as difficulties experienced at home and work are now explained.

This CME Outfitters activity will provide clinicians with the appropriate tools to facilitate the early detection of ADHD in adults, particularly within the context of comorbidities.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Utilize updated diagnostic criteria and screening tools to accurately diagnose ADHD in adults.

Financial Support

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