Caring for children with ADHD (continuing medical education credit available)


Your young patients with potential ADHD need timely and age-appropriate treatment, and their families need support. How confident are you in providing the best treatment possible for your young patients with potential ADHD?

Healthy Blue is pleased to offer a compelling life-based learning experience for Healthy Blue providers in Louisiana. The training is based on Caring for Children with ADHD: A Resource Toolkit for Clinicians , a collaborative project between the Louisiana Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Louisiana Department of Health.

Whether you consider yourself an expert or would like a refresher in ADHD diagnosis and treatments, you will benefit from this interactive eLearning experience.

Why is an ADHD performance improvement project needed?

It is vital that we work together to improve the quality of care received by children with ADHD by implementing a robust set of health plan, member, community, and provider interventions.

How will this benefit you and your practice?

By completing the Caring for Children with ADHD course, you will learn how to apply best practices along with:

  • Insight into your role in assessing young patients with a potential ADHD diagnosis and their treatment.
  • The benefits of using the toolkit.
  • How to integrate the contents of the online toolkit into your electronic medical record and office workflow.
  • How to address disparities and reduce ADHD stigma in diverse populations.
  • How to apply the most effective and age-appropriate multimodal treatment plan for children with ADHD.
