Addressing Eating Disorders in Primary Care - GOLD COAST

About this event

Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) is partnering with the National Eating Disorder Collaboration (NEDC) to run the Addressing Eating Disorders in Primary Care workshop. The workshop aims to equip General Practitioners (GPs) and other health providers with evidence-based education on eating disorders including screening and assessment tools, treatment modalities, resources and referral pathways relevant to their role in the early identification and management of individuals experiencing an eating disorder in a community setting.

Eating disorders affect approximately 9% of Australians and 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.

Learning outcomes 

  • Recognise and respond to the myths, prevalence, risk factors, comorbidities, and warning signs of eating disorders 
  • Apply practical evidence based strategies in the prevention, early identification, assessment  and management of eating disorders 
  • Explain essential elements of care and recovery, and implement multidisciplinary strategies to improve client health outcomes
  • Identify evidence-based eating disorders resources, referral pathways and specialised support services


NEDC is delighted to host highly-experienced eating disorder clinician Dr Kate Murphy, Consultant Psychiatrist, Robina Hospital


RACGP QI&CPD Program for the 2017– 2019 triennium activity number 153999, allocated 4 category 2 CPD points.
