Seminar: Pathway to care for ADHD and the importance of primary care

The understanding of ADHD in healthcare settings is often limited and healthcare professionals often have received very little training on this highly prevalent condition. In many countries, training on ADHD for primary care professionals is not compulsory. This strongly impacts access to diagnosis and treatment as GPs are often gatekeepers to specialist services. Interventions to increase GP’s knowledge, understanding and awareness of ADHD are essential to better facilitate access to care, diagnosis and treatment. This presentation will discuss the co-development of an online intervention for primary care professionals and its impact on knowledge, attitudes and practice.

Bio: Dr Blandine works in clinical and research environments with parents, children and young people with neurodevelopmental disorders. Her PhD investigated the awareness and understanding of ADHD in primary care. She developed and evaluated an online educational tool to increase awareness of ADHD in general practice. This tool was coproduced with GPs and has since been endorsed by the RCGP. Her current fellowship is evaluating the risks and economic costs of undiagnosed autism and/or ADHD.
