"Of the estimated four-to-five percent of adults with ADHD, only 20 percent are ever diagnosed, and this presents us with a tremendous opportunity to raise awareness and make a positive impact for patients and physician learners alike," said Niki Oquist, M.D., FAAP and senior vice president of medical affairs for CME LLC. "ADHD is most commonly associated with children and adolescents, and it morphs to take on a completely different form in adults.
