Despite the pandemic and the limitations it placed in in-person meetings, the science and practice of ADHD has continued to develop at a rapid pace. From clinically relevant findings in genetics and epidemiology to the emergence of novel therapeutics, we have much to share at the 9th World Congress of ADHD, which will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 18 – 21 May 2023.
In addition to disseminating innovations about which we all need to learn, we will also highlight the World Federation of ADHD’s International Consensus Statement on ADHD and its implications for diagnostics and therapeutics. This document was prepared by an international team of 37 authors representing 20 countries and six continents with the goal of communicating the basic uncontested facts about ADHD to patients, parents, clinicians, policy makers and other stakeholders. We hope it will educate the world and reduce stigma for ADHD patients and their families.
The Scientific and Organizing Committee will prepare a wide range of topics to appeal to clinicians and researchers. We use feedback from prior meetings to continue improving the World Federation experience. We are certain that your time in Amsterdam will be both educational and useful, as you will leave with new ideas about how to care for patients with ADHD or how to make meaningful progress in your research efforts.
And let’s not forget that Amsterdam is a wonderful destination for those who also wish to enjoy its remarkable architecture, art and historical venues. It is very well connected internationally with easy accessibility and with no visa limitations. I hope you will join us in Amsterdam to learn from world class researchers and clinicians and to share and exchange experiences with your colleagues from around the world.
