Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children and young people: lisdexamfetamine dimesylate | Key-points-from-the-evidence | Advice | NICE

Limited evidence from 1 RCT suggests that lisdexamfetamine dimesylate produces clinically meaningful benefits in ADHD symptoms compared with placebo. The adverse effect profile appears similar to other stimulant drugs, although theoretical advantages in terms of improved adherence and reduced abuse potential require further evaluation in clinical practice.

E-learning module in psychiatry on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

As part of my 5th year Senior Clinical Project I developed a psychiatry e-learning module in the form of a virtual patient on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), constructed using a PowerPoint template from the e-learning department at Cardiff University. This consisted of a simulated ADHD case, with the student taking the role of a General Practitioner and Specialist Paediatrician involved in the patient’s care. During the course of the module the user is required to make clinical and therapeutic decisions regarding the patient, with educational material revealed to them as they complete a selection of multiple-choice questions on the disorder. The module has since been made available as a resource for future students via blackboard, which can be found at: https://learningcentral.cf.ac.uk/bbcswebdav/institution/Medic/Undergraduate/Virtual%20Patient/src/adhd/adhd.htm Before developing the module, I conducted a thorough literature search on ‘e-learning and medical education’, in order to access current literature and gain an insight into some of the educational theory surrounding the subject. A combination of textbook research, published literature, and national guidelines were then used to establish an extensive knowledge of ADHD from which the module content could be derived. I strongly believe my learning resource will help improve future students' understanding of the disorder, which only forms a small part of the current fourth year psychological medicine curriculum.
