Tasmania event: Eating Disorders: Early Intervention and Community Treatment Training

Tasmania event: Eating Disorders: Early Intervention and Community Treatment Training

Eating Disorders Victoria in collaboration with the Butterfly Foundation

About this event

General Practitioners (GPs) are the first point of call for people who feel they or a loved one may have an eating disorder. However, eating disorders are extremely complex mental illnesses that require some level of specialist knowledge to ensure symptoms are not confused with other conditions.

This activity based training has been designed specifically for GPs and GP treatment teams and will include a panel of experts and people with a lived experience of an eating disorder. Predisposing activity must be completed pre attendance at this event.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Coordinate care for a person with an eating disorder with specialist services and community providers.
  • Evaluate the signs and symptoms of the different types of eating disorders.
  • Support patient engagement and disclosure for patients with an undiagnosed eating disorder.
  • Implement the use of HEADDS and SCOFF screening tools.
  • Assess the clinical risks associated with eating disorders.

If you require any support or information prior to the event, please contact the EDV Hub on 9994 0354 or hub@eatingdisorders.org.au.
