About this event

EVENT AT CAPACITY

National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC) and Central Queensland, Wide Bay, Sunshine Coast PHN invite all medical and health professionals to a FREE 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.

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 care professionals play an important role in early identification and supporting recovery.

WHERE: Empire Hotel, 5 East Street, Rockhampton

TIME: Registrations and a free casual dinner at 6:00pm - workshop will commence at 6:30pm.
