Abstract:

Evidence suggests primary care providers, including nurse practitioners (NPs), have deficits in knowledge, use of assessment tools, and management of adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Education to familiarize NPs with a valid and reliable adult ADHD assessment tool may improve the initial management of adult ADHD in the primary care setting. An educational intervention, intended to increase NPs awareness of the Adult ADHD Self-Assessment Scale v1.1, was presented to a small convenience sample of non-psychiatric NPs, followed by a survey to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention. Data were collected to determine any differences in diagnostic ability post-intervention.
