Nurses

Children on medication for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are unable to be discharged due to a lack of a care pathway that appropriately meets their needs.

According to Ms Sonia Magaharan, Clinical Nurse Specialist, North Cork Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, access to the service for children with ADHD needs to be maximised through the provision of a specialist neurodevelopment team, similar to that in the UK.
