To gain the ANZAED Eating Disorder Credential clinicians are required to complete both introductory training and training in one evidence-based treatment model (mental health professionals) or in evidence-informed dietetic practice (dietitians), as well as having two years of general clinical practice experience. Once credentialed, clinicians must meet the ongoing professional development requirements of six hours of eating disorder-specific supervision (of which a minimum of 50% is in a 1:1 format) and 15 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) relevant to eating disorders per year.

While essential for maintaining the quality and value of the credential, for some clinicians, the required training and supervision may be difficult to access.

To support clinicians to meet the training and supervision criteria, NEDC is providing Professional Development Packages of free training and/or supervision. These opportunities have been made available through funding from the Australian Government.

What are the Credential Professional Development Packages?

The Professional Development Packages are designed to support clinicians to meet the training and/or supervision requirements of the Credential. These Packages will be available from 24 November 2021 until 30 June 2023.

The Professional Development Packages will seek to flexibly meet the needs of clinicians across their individual training and supervision needs. These opportunities will be provided across three clinician groups:

Clinicians new to providing treatment for people experiencing an eating disorder 

These clinicians require introductory training, training in one evidence-based treatment model (mental health professionals) or in evidence-informed dietetic practice (dietitians), and supervision.

Clinicians with some experience providing treatment for people experiencing an eating disorder 

These clinicians have some introductory knowledge but lack specific treatment provision training and/or supervision. Clinicians will require supervision and may require training in an evidence-based eating disorder treatment model (mental health professionals) or in evidence-informed dietetic practice for eating disorders (dietitians).

Clinicians with experience in providing treatment for people living with an eating disorder 

These clinicians have training in an evidence-based eating disorder treatment model (mental health professionals) or in evidence-informed dietetic practice for eating disorders (dietitians), are already providing treatment for people living with eating disorder and may benefit from the opportunity of free supervision. Clinicians will require supervision (without training).

All training and supervision will be offered in an online format to provide access to clinicians from across Australia. NEDC will coordinate and administer the Professional Development Packages, connecting clinicians with training and supervision according to their needs.

There are a limited number of Professional Development Packages available across the three clinician groups (as described above) and the first eligible applicants will be awarded the Professional Development Packages.
