Description

Objectives:
At the end of the session the participants will be able to:

1. Have reviewed the prevalence of ADHD and coexisting conditions occurrence.
2. Understand the implications of untreated ADHD as it relates to patients with coexisting conditions.
3. Have Increased confidence and expertise in the diagnosis and management of coexisting conditions with ADHD.
4. Will evaluate both nonpharmacological and pharmacological methods for treating patients with ADHD and coexisting conditions, ensuring a well-rounded approach to care.

Description:
A surprisingly high number of individuals with ADHD have other coexisting conditions. The overt symptoms of ADHD may overshadow these other conditions, but just as untreated ADHD can present challenges in everyday life, other conditions or disorders can also cause unnecessary suffering in those with ADHD if left untreated. The combination of ADHD with other disorders presents extra challenges for families and healthcare providers. Join Dr. Gurdeep Parhar in this follow-up to his previous excellent Adult ADHD webinar, where we’ll discuss coexisting conditions, how to sharpen your detection of them, and pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods for treating ADHD with coexisting conditions.
