Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Educating and Supporting Primary Care Providers in the Implementation of Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs) for ADHD
The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
Approved: December 2013
Grant Period: January 2014 – December 2015
The goal of this project is to increase the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) for assessing and treating children with ADHD between 5 and 12 years in the context of primary care practice, as described in the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines for ADHD. Our team will accomplish this goal by using an integrated approach that includes education about EBPs, communication training, collaborative consultation, an electronic health record (EHR)-linked portal to support shared decision making, and ongoing performance feedback.
