“I learnt so much from this session and have been able to use it with my patients already. Hopefully I am now not missing patients which I am sure I did in the past.” – Victorian GP
General Practitioners (GPs) are the first point of call for people who feel they or a loved one may have an eating disorder. However, eating disorders are extremely complex mental illnesses that require some level of specialist knowledge to ensure symptoms are not confused with other conditions.
EDV offer two training options to GPs and other non-specialised health practitioners to help in the diagnosis and treatment of eating disorders.
Eating Disorders: Early Intervention and Community Treatment.
