Introduction: While providers in collaborative care have been challenged to respond to rising patient complaints about attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adulthood, institutional guidance has been lacking or insufficient. To address this issue, an Adult ADHD Toolkit was created to be used by providers spanning primary care and psychiatry. This article reviews how the toolkit was developed, its contents, and future directions.
Methods: A workgroup of providers from different backgrounds devised materials for the toolkit by reviewing adult ADHD literature and clinical consensus.
Discussion: The toolkit addresses common dilemmas encountered in the evaluation and management of adult ADHD, and is intended to be used dependent on provider and patient needs.
Conclusion: More information is needed about the feasibility and implications of adapting the Adult ADHD Toolkit. Such information could help guide future efforts at improving patient outcomes through a collaborative care model.
