Therapeutic intervention in children with attention deficit disorders in primary care

Dr. Mercedes Isabel Guamán Guamán, Dr. Jeanneth Elizabeth Jami Carrera, Dr. Carlos López Barrionuevo


Introduction: 16% and 20% of children and adolescents experience a mental health condition. New models of care are being examined. Purpose: The study examined the management of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder during and after family involvement. Methods: A community-based randomized controlled trial compared the effectiveness of two models for children with ADHD and their families. Results: Participants in the Direct Service Model had significantly more visits for ADHD (M = 7.05 vs. M = 3.36; p < 0.0001). Conclusions: The results of this pragmatic follow-up suggest a “side effect” for brief intensive treatment in the direct service model.
