NT PHN invites clinical health professionals to join us at the Mercure Airport Resort for an educational evening with Dr David Chapman followed by a networking dinner
Dr Chapman currently works in the Top End Mental Health Service as a Consultant Psychiatrist in the Adult Team.
He has over 10 years’ experience in Adult ADHD, which has been reinforced by attendance at many International and Australian conferences, and is a member of the World Federation of ADHD and the Australian Association of ADHD Professionals. David is the NT representative on the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists Bi-National ADHD Network Committee.
David is an Honorary Consultant in Women’s Mental Health at the Monash-Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre, where he developed a further understanding of ADHD in Females in addition to gaining experience in the complex area of Women’s mental health.
In undertaking clinical care of adults with ADHD, David also has some experience with those who have Asperger syndrome as a co-morbidity. This has brought some understanding of the under-diagnosis of women with both ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder, and a greater awareness of the range of presentation of these disorders.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Discuss ADHD as a prevalent neurodevelopmental disorder, complicated by social factors, and with numerous comorbidities
- Discuss the principles of diagnosis and treatment of ADHD
- Describe the personal and societal costs of ADHD in Australia
