Addressing Eating Disorders in Primary Care - PERTH WA

About this event

**WORKSHOP AT CAPACITY - WAITLIST ACTIVE

Eating disorders affect approximately 9% of Australians, have one of the highest mortality rates of any mental illness, and require a multidisciplinary approach. When armed with the right information, screening and referral tools, GPs, psychologists, dietitians, and primary health care professionals play an important role in early identification and supporting recovery.

The National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC) and Western Australia Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA) invite all medical and health professionals to a 2-hour professional development workshop on eating disorders in primary care. The workshop will cover screening and assessment, management and treatment, supporting patient and carers, recovery and essential elements of care, referral pathways, support services, and resources.

NEDC are delighted to host guest speakers from WA Eating Disorders Outreach and Consultation Service WAEDOCS 

Dr Anthea Fursland, A/Director, Consultant Clinical Psychologist

Dr Lisa Miller, Medical Director, Consultant Psychiatrist SCGH Department of Psychiatry North Metropolitan Mental Health Service

Mel Edwin, Dietitian, WAEDOCS

They bring a wealth of experience and clinical expertise in eating disorders and practice in WA and across Australia. 

Join us at 6:30pm for finger food, networking and registration. The workshop will commence at 7:00pm. 

 

We hope to provide this education to as many health professionals as possible. While it is a free event, registrations are essential.

Hosted by the Eating Disorders Program Training and Evaluation Centre, Child and Adolescent Health Service, Perth Children’s Hospital.
