NHMRC: Clinical practice points on the diagnosis, assessment and management of ADHD in children and adolescents

Print this page

Overview

The Australian Government National Health and Medical Resecarch Council developed the Clinical Practice Points on the Diagnosis, Assessment and Management of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (the CPPs) to guide health professionals in the diagnosis, assessment and management of clinically significant symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents.

These CPPs were developed to assist general practitioners (GPs), paediatricians (including paediatric neurologists), child/adolescent psychiatrists, clinical and neuro-psychologists, allied health professionals and special educators in decision-making and coordination of care when working with children and adolescents with ADHD.
