Workforce Core Competencies: A competency framework for eating disorders in Australia

About this resource

Workforce core competencies for the safe and effective identification of and response to eating disorders.

This document is an extract from the National Practice Standards for Eating Disorders, published by the National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC) in 2018, and adapted with training organisations in mind. 

This document sets out the workforce core competencies for the safe and effective identification of and response to eating disorders in an Australian context. This includes consideration of the continuum of care for eating disorders from the earliest possible point of identification, through initial response to shared care, evidence-based treatment and recovery support. 

This document is recommended for use in mapping and planning of eating disorders professional development and training.
