    To address the increasing demand for assessments of Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), the primary author developed a protocol for Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at Stanford University's Vaden Student Health Center to improve the efficiency of such evaluations.As part of quality assurance, we reviewed the charts of Stanford students who sought assessment for ADHD before the protocol was implemented (September 2011-June 2013) and after the protocol was established (October 2013-August 2014). An IRB exemption was obtained.The protocol includes questionnaires that solicit detailed clinical information from a variety of sources prior to the student's initial visit.A peer chart review of 35 randomly selected charts showed that students completing the protocol are receiving a more thorough assessment.The new Stanford ADHD protocol, designed to improve clinic efficiency, also increases the availability of relevant clinical information.
