Assessing and Treating Clients With ADHD

Assessing and Treating Clients With ADHD Not only do children and adults have different presentations for ADHD, but males and females may also have vastly different clinical presentations. They may also respond to medication therapies differently. For example, some ADHD medications may cause children to experience stomach pain, while others can be highly addictive for adults. In your role, as a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, you must perform careful assessments and weigh the risks and benefits of medication therapies for clients across the lifespan. For this Assignment, you consider how you might assess and treat clients presenting with ADHD. Learning Objectives Students will: Assess client factors and history to develop personalized therapy plans for clients with ADHD Analyze factors that influence pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes in clients requiring therapy for ADHD Evaluate efficacy of treatment plans Evaluate ethical and legal implications related to prescribing therapy for clients with ADHD Learning Resources Note: To access this week’s required library resources, please click on the link to the Course Readings List, found in the Course Materials section of your Syllabus.
