The UK Adult ADHD Network (UKAAN) will host its 5th Congress on Fri 22nd and Sat 23rd April 2016. This 2 day conference is entitled ‘Key Challenges and Practical Solutions – a Clinician focused conference on Adult ADHD’
There is growing recognition of the role of ADHD in adult mental health and the availability of effective clinical and psychosocial interventions. The conference will build on this growing expertise by providing a European perspective that highlights the full range of functional, cognitive and mental health impairments, the impact that ADHD has on adolescent and adult mental health and the contribution to adolescent and adult psychopathology. This meeting will address important clinical questions relating to the management of ADHD in adults and will be relevant to clinicians interested in the mental health of people from the adolescent years through to early, middle and later adult life.
This meeting aims to raise the level of awareness, knowledge and expertise among health care professionals about people with ADHD as they grow older; and to provide a better understanding of the persistence of the disorder and the development of comorbid mental health problems. The program will be delivered by prominent opinion leaders, clinical experts and internationally recognised investigators and is designed to cover key topics relevant to the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD during the critical period from adolescence to adulthood. The selection of speakers is particular important so that the audience can hear directly from the most experienced professionals working in this rapidly developing area of clinical psychiatry.
