Done.’s clinical leadership team is composed of some of the foremost experts in the field of ADHD treatment and within mental health. Often, and sometimes rightly, people associate medical practitioners with doctors and psychiatrists. But of course the nursing profession is essential to all forms of healthcare and wellness.
The role of a nurse is critical as both experts in their field but also deep relationships across a wide range of patients and understanding their needs. They are both the first-responders but also the long-term care practitioners. And they offer a bridge across various disciplines of the medical eco-system. Not to mention their commitment to care at all levels.
