Attention Deficit Disorder, either the inattentive, hyperactive, or combined type is fairly common in patients with Tourette syndrome. Furthermore, impulse control disorders are common as well. Frequently, the functional impact of these conditions outweighs the impact of tics in the lives of these patients. This webinar will define both disorders and explore best ways to manage them in children and adults with Tourette syndrome.
Physicians and Physician Specialists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Medical Students, Residents, Fellows and other allied healthcare professionals engaged in the care of patients with Tourette syndrome.
After participating in this webcast, participants should be better able to:
- Define ways ADHD can present and impact patients with Tourette syndrome
- Define ways impulse control can present and impact the lives of patients with Tourette syndrome
- Delineate the different treatments, whether behavioral, lifestyle or pharmacological, to manage both conditions.
