The Academy of Medicine, Singapore and Ministry of Health have published evidence-based clinical practice guidelines on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

The guidelines were developed by a multi-disciplinary expert committee comprising psychiatrists, paediatricians, educational psychologists, a medical social worker, a pharmacist, an advanced practice nurse and a parent caregiver, using evidence-based methodology.   The guidelines provide an overview of the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in children and adolescents, and also summarise the evidence base supporting various treatments for ADHD.  It will be useful in helping professionals to understand the evidence-based treatments for ADHD that are available and to plan treatment for children and adolescents with ADHD.


The guidelines are available below or in digital format on the MOH CPG website.
