Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and locomotor hyperactivity. 

This course, Neuroscience and Advanced Psychopharmacology of ADHD, is designed to equip healthcare professionals, clinicians, and researchers with a profound understanding of ADHD, the psychopharmacology of ADHD treatments, ADHD medication guides, and ADHD’s evolving treatment landscape.

The course delves into the neurobiology of ADHD – in particular the brain changes and neurochemical deficit theories underpinning this condition. We discuss the role of the prefrontal cortex and neurotransmitters (dopamine and noradrenaline) for a better understanding of the neuroscience of ADHD.

You will gain expertise in the psychopharmacology of stimulant vs. non-stimulant ADHD medications, with a focus on their applications for adults. Aside from ADHD medication guides, a section on ADHD treatment guidelines discusses the legal obligations and implications for prescribing authorities. You will be guided by case studies and the latest research on ADHD treatments.

Throughout the course, you will engage with in-depth discussions on ADHD treatments, learn how to develop a personalized treatment plan for ADHD patients, and understand the nuances of ADHD medication management. By the end of this ADHD medication guide you will gain a better understanding of ADHD neurobiology and psychopharmacology – making you a better prescriber and practitioner.
