The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) sets the standards for high quality healthcare and encourages healthy living. Note that NICE guidelines 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 guideline covers diagnosing and managing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children over 3 years, young people and adults. It aims to improve the diagnosis of ADHD as well as the quality of care and support for people with ADHD.
