The ADHD Guideline integrates the best available evidence with multi-disciplinary clinical expertise and consumer preferences.

The Guideline aims to promote accurate and timely diagnosis and provide guidance on optimal and consistent assessment and treatment of ADHD. Comprising 111 recommendations for diagnosing, assessing, and treating ADHD across the lifespan, it represents the most comprehensive guideline developed since the influential NICE 2018 guideline for “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Diagnosis and Management” produced for use in the UK.

The Guideline was developed by updating the evidence reviews, conducting new evidence reviews for questions not addressed by NICE, and adapting the guidance to the Australian context. It underwent extensive reviews, including public consultation, where over 700 comments were addressed, an international expert review, and an expert methodological review commissioned by the NHMRC.

An accompanying Consumer Companion, fact sheets and other resources can be found on the Australian ADHD Guideline website.
