Researcher presents posters at international conference
University of Sheffield Research Associate Lauren Powell attended the Royal College of Psychiatrists International Congress 2018 in Birmingham in earlier this month.
Lauren presented two posters:
ADHD: is there an app for that? A suitability assessment of apps for parents of children and young people with ADHD. Powell, L., Parker, J., Harpin, V. (2018)
This study involved speaking with parents of children and young people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and clinicians to explore how suitable apps for the parents are and why/why not. The full paper can be accessed here.
What is the level of evidence for the use of currently available technologies in facilitating the self-management of difficulties associated with ADHD in children and young people? A systematic review. Powell, L., Parker, J., Harpin, V. (2018)
This review focussed on what technology (not just mobile apps) is available for children and young people with ADHD and how effective it is. The full paper can be accessed here.
Lauren was particularly interested in presentations about ADHD across the life course and difficulties experienced when young people with ADHD transfer from child to adult services.
This work was funded and supported by NIHR CLAHRC YH and Lauren works within the Telehealth and Care Technologies (TaCT) theme.
