Website purpose and intended audience

This guideline is for the identification, diagnosis and treatment of people with ADHD. This clinical practice guideline for ADHD was developed to provide a roadmap for ADHD clinical practice, research and policy, now and in the future, and to help people in Australia who are living with ADHD, and those who care for them, to improve their health and wellbeing.

This guideline is mainly intended for clinicians, including medical and allied health professionals, nurses (including mental health nurses and mental health nurse practitioners), pharmacists, and for other people involved in the support of people with ADHD, such as educators. It includes guidance for clinicians in education, forensic and addiction service settings. We anticipate this guideline will also be used by people with ADHD and their families, parents, carers and partners.

Professionals with appropriate credentials and training can use this guideline to guide identification, diagnosis and treatment and provide support for individuals with ADHD. Health Service providers and policymakers can use it to guide local services and policy development. Those in organisations responsible for making funding decisions can use this guideline to develop a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by those with ADHD and the many approaches that, with adequate funding, will make a real difference for individuals and the community.

It is hoped that those who assist individuals with ADHD in educational, occupational, juvenile justice, community, disability and aged-care settings will be able to use this guideline to optimise the functioning and participation of people with ADHD and, ultimately, their well-being, welfare and productivity.
