ANZAED Eating Disorder Credential

By recommendation of the MBS Working Group on Eating Disorders and with the financial support of the Australian Government, the Australia and New Zealand Academy for Eating Disorders (ANZAED) and the National Eating Disorder Collaboration (NEDC) partnered to develop a credentialing system for mental health and dietetic eating disorder treatment providers. The credentialing system aims to help people experiencing eating disorders to identify and access the right treatment at the right time, increasing the chance of timely intervention and positive treatment outcome. 

ANZAED now coordinates the credentialing system. We encourage you to visit the connect.ed website for comprehensive information on the ANZAED Eating Disorder Credential and application pathways. If you are a clinician interested in applying for the ANZAED Eating Disorder Credential, please ensure you have read the Clinician Information Pack. This provides detailed instructions on how you can meet the eligibility criteria and ongoing requirements for the Credential and will help prepare you for your application.

if you are a referrer or someone looking for a Credentialed Eating Disorder Clinician, please see the searchable database.


NEDC Training Approvals

NEDC coordinates a Training Approvals process for those trainings relevant to the Credential. This includes:

• Introduction to Eating Disorders

For clinicians wishing to become credentialed, you will need to complete NEDC Approved Trainings in order to meet the training eligibility criteria.
