About this series

ADHD is a common condition which is often associated with poor long-term outcomes. It affects whole families, and GPs are the clinicians best able to deliver holistic patient and family centred care. When ADHD is stable, treatment can be safely delivered in primary care with specialist support and research shows that GPs want a more significant role in managing ADHD in these instances.

GPs may attract 40 Category 1 points, accredited as an active learning module through the RACGP QI&CPD Program (2017-2019 Triennium) and 30 Category 1 points through ACRRM. Conditions apply. Medicare rebates are also available for GP case presentations.

GPs may attract Category 1 CPD points for GPs, accredited by RACGP/ACRRM. Conditions apply. Medicare rebates are also available for GP case presentations.

What our GPs have to say

“Participating in ECHO® is like having a friendly weekly check-in with an expert panel to round out your complex consultations. The value to my patients in providing a well-rounded opinion to them after presenting their child’s complex presentation to the ECHO® panel is amazing. It has opened up my mind to the possibilities of multidisciplinary case conferences where I previously thought them an impossible dream for general practice.”
Dr Aaron Chambers MBBS BSc DCH FRACGP, Grow Medical
“It has been wonderful to get actual multidisciplinary teaching on this very common condition! One of the things that has really struck me is the amount allied health can really contribute to the management of ADHD. This includes not just dietitians, OTs and psychologists but also social workers and school guidance counsellors. Not only have I learnt a lot about ADHD, I have also learnt so much about holistic patient care.”
Dr Melita Cullen MBBS BSc(Hons) RACGP DCH, Majellan Medical Centre
