Continuum events: practice-changing medical education

Engaging in complex treatment decisions is a standard part of ADHD management today, as the clinical picture evolves with patients’ developmental stages. More than 100 participants joined Continuum’s expert Steering Committee to address ADHD treatment challenges at the Continuum satellite symposium on 9 April 2013 at the 21st European Congress of Psychiatry (EPA 2013) in Nice, France.

Continuum events: practice-changing medical education
Continuum showcased its novel approach to confronting clinical issues and immersed attendees in a challenging interactive case study. Participants followed the journey of Lana, a female patient with ADHD. From accurate diagnosis to transitioning to adult care, the symposium viewed Lana’s ADHD from the perspective of Lana, her doctor (Dr Martins), her parents and her teacher, with participants taking on each of these roles and engaging in interactive voting on treatment decisions.
