The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) sets the standards for high quality healthcare and encourages healthy living. Note that NICE guidelines and standards are developed in the UK for their specific health settings and as such, some health service recommendations may not translate to the Australian context. NICE guidelines are however based on robust international research evidence which can help inform Australian based practitioners in their assessment and treatment practices.
This quality standard covers the diagnosis and management of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children aged 3 years and older, young people and adults.
