Event description

Description

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.

This activity based training has been designed specifically for GPs and will include a panel of experts and people with a lived experience of an eating disorder.

To comply with RACGP and ACRRM points and allocation, predisposing and reinforcing activities must be completed pre and post attendance at this event

Learning outcomes

1. Coordinate care for a person with an eating disorder with specialist services and community providers.

2. Evaluate the signs and symptoms of the different types of eating disorders.

5. Assess the clinical risks associated with eating disorders.
