Evaluating Clinical Outcomes of Treatment Effectiveness for Children and Adults With ADHD

2014-08-27 03:45:30 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To evaluate clinical effectiveness of medication treatment for ADHD. It is hypothesized that the effectiveness is lower than efficacy outcomes measured in clinical trials

Description

This is a prospective, long-term, observational study of routine clinical care. The study measurements will be integrated into the clinical assessment and follow-up procedures of the outpatient services under the Provincial ADHD Program. The study is designed for systematic follow-up of children and adolescents, diagnosed with ADHD irrespective of comorbidity or whether they elect to receive medication treatment. Evaluations occur every 6 months for 24 months. The population to be examined is children and adolescents with a diagnosis of ADHD, aged 6 to 18 inclusive (at baseline), referred to the Provincial ADHD Program for clinical assessment. No studies have been conducted that have evaluated the outcome of core ADHD symptoms in a clinic setting. Metaanalysis of clinical trials of medication treatment for ADHD have suggested an effect size of approximately 0.8. Because of the heterogeneity of the clinic sample, a much lower effect size can be anticipated. Two hundred patients will be enrolled in this study with primary measure of effectiveness being change in ADHD symptoms.

Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-IV)
