Addressing Eating Disorders in General Practice: An Introduction

About this event

National Eating Disorders Collaboration in collaboration with South Western Sydney PHN invites all health professionals to this free education workshop on eating disorders.

Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses associated with significant physical and psychological complications and increased mortality. Due to the complex nature of eating disorders, treatment can often mean working with a multidisciplinary team of practitioners.

This event will provide key information professionals need to know to be able to identify, screen, respond to and care for people affected by eating disorders. The session will cover: 

• The signs and symptoms of different types of eating disorders
• Tackling common myths and misconceptions
• Screening and assessment
• Treatment and the building blocks of recovery
• Eating disorder resources, referral pathways and specialised support services, including the opportunity to hear from the SWS LHD Eating Disorders Coordinator”

For further information contact NEDC at or register above via “Attend Event”.
