See this month's free myADHD. Research Updates Study examines whether primary care physicians follow the practice guidelines in the care of children with ADHD. Jerry Ruston and colleagues sought to describe primary care diagnosis and management of ADHD, to determine whether the care is in accordance with American Academy of Pediatrics AAP practice guidelines, and to describe factors associated with guideline adherence.

However, only about one quarter of the clinicians routinely used all four diagnostic components in the survey. Some physicians continue to use diagnostic modalities that are not currently recommended for routine evaluation of school-aged children with ADHD—continuous performance testing, neuroimaging, and laboratory tests eg, thyroid, lead, or iron testing.
Pediatricians were more likely to recommend medication, but family physicians reported more frequent follow-up evaluations for children who receive medication. About half of the clinicians reported that insurers limit coverage for assessment and treatment of ADHD. The study leaders concluded that primary care physicians generally report awareness of pediatric ADHD guidelines and follow these clinical practice recommendations.
