In recognition of the impact of ADHD on people across the world, the meeting is called â€œADHD Worldwideâ€.
All over the world, around 7% of the child population and 4% of adults are impaired by ADHD. Many of them suffer from comorbid psychiatric disorders, mostly anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, delinquency and substance abuse.
Started about 5 years ago by the leading health care professionals for ADHD in Europe and in the US, the ENAA and APSARD groups have created webs of teaching and knowledge, accompanied by yearly meetings. This time, we decided to combine our efforts in order to create the first international meeting, unifying both continents. Researchers and clinicians, about a third of them-active psychiatrists from both the US, Canada, Eastern and Western Europe and Israel are going to gather together to exchange new knowledge and experience in the field of ADHD, its etiology, clinical manifestations, comorbidities and treatments.
The meeting is a tailored congress that takes an integrated approach to ADHD evaluation and treatment. Professionals in the field will enjoy a high-level scientific program covering the latest perspectives and developments in the different components of ADHD.
