Attention-deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), October 2012

Edited by Kapil Sayal

This Virtual Issue pulls together a number of papers published in CAMH in recent years that have focused on ADHD. This issue distils key clinical practice and research messages from articles that were published prior to and since the publication and dissemination of the NICE ADHD guidelines. Together the articles (reflecting expert commentary, review articles, and original research) provide a comprehensive guide across a full range of debate around identification, recognition, associated problems, assessment, service organisation, and interventions for children and adolescents with ADHD. By gathering these articles into a single collection and readily available resource, our aim is to increase awareness and knowledge about their key messages and to stimulate debate amongst key stakeholders including children and young people, parents, teachers and other education-based professionals, healthcare professionals, and researchers.
