Cluster-randomized, controlled 12-month trial to evaluate the effect of a parental psychoeducation program on medication persistence among children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.NEUROPSYCHIATRIC DISEASE AND TRATMENT

This study did not demonstrate a significant advantage for parental psychoeducation plus medication over medication alone on time to withdrawal of medication when administered to parents of children undergoing treatment for newly diagnosed ADHD over a 12-month time period. However, patients with learning difficulties were more likely to discontinue treatment than those without such difficulties. Inconsistent but interesting effects of psychoeducation on other clinical outcomes were recorded and no safety issues were raised. These findings support the further evaluation of psychoeducation for parents of children being treated for ADHD in appropriately controlled trials.
