Information pack 66 pages

This information pack for general practitioners provides information on Eating Disorders, including diagnostic features and issues, and guidance on assessment, management, and referral. The information pack includes a five-question screening tool that has been found to reliably identify individuals with an Eating Disorder (the SCOFF questionnaire). Signs to be aware of during physical and related (historical, psychiatric, social, and behavioural) assessment are reported and suggestions of methods to monitor physical status are provided.
