Exploring patient & clinician factors which influence the involvement of dietitians in ED treatment

About this study

Researchers from the Boden Collaboration at the University of Sydney are conducting a study to examine to what extent clinicians’ decision to involve a dietitian in a patient’s eating disorder treatment is influenced by: (1) patient characteristics and (2) clinician beliefs.

The results of this study will be used to enhance the provision of multi-disciplinary treatment for patients with an eating disorder, particularly in light of the recent enhancement to Medicare-subsidised sessions for individuals with an eating disorder.
