ADHD in Adulthood

Thursday 13th October 2022

The Met Hotel, King Street, Leeds, LS1 2HQ

9.00am Registration, 09.30am Start and 4.00pm Close


Adult ADHD is no longer a disorder we can ignore. A meta-analysis estimates world prevalence of ADHD in adults to average 2.5% or higher, and is identified in 15% of patients attending general psychiatry clinics. Despite the publication of NICE guidelines, you may still have little experience or confidence in the assessment and management of the disorder. 

 In this workshop, Dr Rob Baskind, Consultant Psychiatrist at Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, will cover the principles of screening and assessing for ADHD in adults, distinguishing it from other mental disorder, and considering the impact of co-morbidity. In addition, there will be training in the initiation and monitoring of pharmacological treatment consideration of other non-pharmacological interventions

This course aims to provide delegates with:

  • Knowledge on how to screen and asses for adult ADHD
  • Be familiar and more confident how to initiate and monitor pharmacological treatment
  • Have an awareness of the effectiveness of non pharmacological interventions
