More parents of children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report obtaining information about the condition and treatment from online sources than from either the healthcare provider, school or pharmacy. Lead author, Adam Sage, PhD candidate, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, N.C., commented to MD Magazine on the variety of information sources available to parents, and how differences in their access, interest and understanding of the information could effect therapeutic interventions provided to the children as well as the compliance to treatment.
