National Agenda for Eating Disorders: Establishing a baseline of evidence-based care for any Australian with or at risk of an eating disorder

About this resource

Over the past ten years, national and state-based eating disorder organisations have developed a substantial suite of documents on the evidence-based standards and practices of delivering effective treatment to people with eating disorders. The National Agenda for Eating Disorders brings together the evidence and consensus-based expert opinion behind these documents into a summary of the priorities for mental health system reform to address the needs of people with eating disorders and their families.
