ADHD research - CATCh-uS begins

CATCh-uS officially went live on the 1st of November!  We are now collecting data for the surveillance study which will inform us how many young people with ADHD (on medication) need a transfer to adult services for continued treatment. The study is run by the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit (BPSU) and the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Surveillance System (CAPSS) who sent out their first yellow cards (see picture) to consultant paediatricians and child psychiatrists in the UK and ROI and we have received the first reported cases.

In the last meeting with the Family Faculty, we learned how parents of children with ADHD want to be involved in the study. With two new recruits to the project team, Helen Eke and Anna Stimson, the New Year will kick-start the qualitative work and the mapping study. For more information about this study please see the project page.
