Key Thinkers Forum: Eating Disorders, Wellbeing and a National Data Approach

Inside Out Institute for Eating Disorders

About this event

Eating disorders are common in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. While the limited evidence is mixed, most studies show that First Nations Australians are at greater risk of disordered eating and eating disorders compared with non-Indigenous Australians and report higher levels of body dissatisfaction. There is an urgent need for further research, the development of culturally appropriate assessment tools and psychotherapeutic treatments, and we need to better understand the impact of eating disorders on First Nations peoples.

InsideOut Institute has been funded by the Australian Government to explore ways to try to improve national data systems for the incidence and health system response to eating concerns and disorders, including those experienced by Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders.

This Key Thinkers Forum will be facilitated by Prof Tom Calma AO, FAA, and led by the team based at Djurali Centre for Indigenous Health Education and Research at Macquarie University in collaboration with InsideOut Institute.

The Forum is related to current and emerging food and eating disorder issues within the community, how current national data systems work (or not) to understand these, and how to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Data Sovereignty issues are addressed in future planning.
