Clinical Guidelines for Therapeutic Interventions for Eating Disorders (EDQ)

About this resource

Current clinical guidelines for the treatment of eating disorders in Australia are aimed at treatments for medical and psychiatric care in line with the DSM-5 and International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10). The EDQ clinical guidelines presented here have been specifically developed to inform clinical therapeutic practice with clients who have eating disorders, rather than to manage their medical and psychiatric care.
