The Section of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (SCAP), College of Psychiatrists held a CME talk on 13 November 2017 at the NUHS Tower Block. Renowned psychiatrist and author, Prof Thomas E Brown PhD was invited to share his expertise on “Impairment of executive function in children and adults with ADHD, their assessment and how the executive functional impairment changes along life trajectory”.


Due to unforeseen medical condition, Prof Brown was unable to present his talk in person, but graciously agreed to proceed with a video conference instead. The talk took off with a welcome remarks from SCAP Chairman, A/Prof Ong Say How, followed by his introduction to Prof Brown.


Valuable takeaways Prof Brown shared during his talk are: ADHD as Executive Function Impairment; Central mystery of ADHD; Cognitive chemistry of motivation; Impact of ADHD on motivation; and Implications for treating ADHD & other disorders.


The Section of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry would like to thank the National University Hospital, Singapore; Institute of Mental Health; Child Guidance Clinic; KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital; College of Paediatrics and Child Health, Singapore; and Focus on Children's Understanding in School for co-organizing the event.  The Organizing Committee also extends its appreciation to Johnson and Johnson Pte Ltd  for sponsoring the scrumptious dinner buffet.
