Unmasking the unseen: ADHD in women, hormones and the hidden healthcare crisis

11 May 2024
Medicines Optimisation Workshops

Historically, ADHD has been widely researched and diagnosed among males, often leaving females underrepresented and misunderstood in this domain. This presentation seeks to unveil the unique manifestations of ADHD in women, exploring the intricacies of how hormones, genetics and differential symptoms play a pivotal role for these patients. We will discuss the challenges women with ADHD face such as misdiagnoses, inadequate treatment, subsequent healthcare challenges and more! By unmasking these unseen factors, we aim to bring light to this hidden healthcare crisis and offer insights into better diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.
