Issue 60 I Eating Disorders in Aged Care: What does this look like?
NEDC e-BulletinEditor’s NoteWelcome to the 60th edition of the NEDC e-Bulletin.In this edition of the NEDC e-Bulletin, we look at the effects of malnutrition in the aged care setting, and the link between poor nutrition (among other factors) and eating disorders in later life.As we move with pace towards the end of another financial year and the marking of 10 years of the National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC), we are pleased to announce the ongoing support of the Commonwealth Government in funding the work of the NEDC into 2022.With the announcement of increased funding to support Australians living with an eating disorder and their carers, along with the incoming changes to the Medicare Benefits Scheme, we acknowledge now, more than ever, the importance of a united and collaborative sector.Engaging with our membership, developing and growing our relationships within the health sector and primary health networks across Australia will always remain at the forefront of NEDC activities.As we move forward into the next funding period, we will continue to drive the evolution of an evidence-based, best practice framework that will support and educate our workforce, in the creation of a nationally consistent approach to the prevention, treatment, and management of eating disorders.We look forward to working with our key stakeholders who provide the supportive foundations required to extend our reach and partnership across new areas of primary and secondary care, and amongst diverse sectors.We are grateful for the continued support of our membership, who unite in our vision to make eating disorders a priority mainstream health issue in Australia, with an effective continuum of prevention, care and ongoing recovery support for all Australians.We look forward to what our collaboration brings to the sector in the future.ContentsFeature Article: Eating disorders within Aged Care Q and A: Queensland Eating Disorder Service (QuEDS) on Eating Disorders in Aged Care NEW NEDC Digital Training Package New Professional Resources: Eating Disorders and Oral Health – Fact Sheets for patients and practitioners.Read more
