Practical Responses to Eating Disorders: A Guide to Implementing Responses to Eating Disorders in General Health Services

About this resource

Implementation translates evidence into practice. The NEDC has developed a suite of evidence informed reports and resources that together outline evidence from research, clinical expertise and lived experience of eating disorders. This Implementation Guide explores the practical first steps required to translate that evidence into accessible and effective services for people with eating disorders. It is intended for use by people with an interest in planning, evaluating or developing services for people with eating disorders.
