Treating Eating Disorders in Primary Care - ROMA

About this event

National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC) and Western Queensland PHN invite all medical and health professionals to a FREE 2-hour professional development workshop on eating disorders in primary care.

The workshop will cover screening and assessment; management and treatment; supporting patient and carers; recovery and essential elements of care; referral pathways, support services, and resources.

Eating disorders affect approximately 9% of Australians, have one of the highest mortality rates of any mental illness, and require a multidisciplinary approach. When armed with the right information, screening and referral tools, GPs, psychologists, dietitians, and primary care professionals play an important role in early identification and supporting recovery.

WHEN: Wednesday 13 February, 2019 

WHERE: Western QLD PHN office, 61 McDowall St, Roma

TIME: Registrations and a free casual dinner at 6:00pm - workshop will commence at 6:30pm.


SPEAKERS: NEDC are delighted to host guest speakers Elaine Painter & Erin Marsland from Queensland Eating Disorder Service (QuEDS), formerly known as the Eating Disorder Outreach Service (EDOS).

QuEDS provide assessment, care, and treatment for people and their families affected by eating disorders; as well as provide advice, support, training, and education for health professionals. 

We hope to provide this education to as many health professionals as possible. Please download the attached pdf flyer and share with your colleagues and in your workplaces. 

While it is a free event, registrations are essential. Please inform NEDC as soon as possible if you are unable to attend the event after your RSVP.
