NEDC Report on Eating Disorders Training in Australia (2018)
About this resource
The National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC) prepared a report for the Australian Government on the current state of professional development training on eating disorders in Australia. The report followed a mapping exercise that had been undertaken by the NEDC in collaboration with an expert Advisory Group.
The mapping exercise was done in order to map at a national level (i) the current range of government-funded professional development training about eating disorders delivered around Australia, and (ii) how each of these training offerings aligns with the National Practice Standards for Eating Disorders.
