QuEDS Guide to Admission and Inpatient Treatment

About this resource

The Guide to Admission and Inpatient Treatment has been developed by the Queensland Eating Disorder Service (QuEDS) and is supported by current literature, research, and expert opinion. 

The guidelines will assist treating teams to:
• Manage the medical and psychological risks and needs of people with eating disorders,
• Promote coordinated care with a smooth transition across medical, mental health and specialist services,
• Encourage state-wide consistency in treatment and management,
• Include families and carers in the service response to people affected by eating disorders.
