Abstract

This study evaluates the utility of an evidence-based protocol for the assessment of ADHD in the primary care setting as set forth in a previous study by Polaha et al. (2005). Specifically, this study will examine the viability of this protocol in the context of a pediatric resident training clinic. This study will examine the methods of ADHD diagnosis and assessment in a clinic before and after the protocol training of pediatric residents. We hypothesize that primary care pediatric residents participating in ADHD training protocol, will demonstrate improved capacity to assess, diagnose, and treat ADHD in accordance with the AAP guidelines. The results of this study will show important implications for the translation of published, evidence-based guidelines to real-world settings.
