Description
247 caregivers of a child diagnosed with ADHD completed a survey to assess their attitude and level of satisfaction with their child’s stimulant treatment. The participants were recruited from six pediatric facilities associated with a large health maintenance organization (HMO). Eligibility requirements included: a) the child was under 20 years of age, b) had taken ADHD medication within the last 12 months and, c) the primary caregiver knew the type of stimulant prescribed. The 47 item self-administered Attitudes, Satisfaction, Knowledge, and Medication Experiences (ASK-ME) survey is comprised of 5 sections: medication treatment characteristics, knowledge assessment, attitude and satisfaction scales, and demographic characteristics.
