Eating Disorders: Early Intervention and Community Treatment for GPs and eating disorder treatment teams [GIPPSLAND ONLY].

About this Event

Please note that to enrol in this training you must be a GP or part of a treatment team who lives or works in the Gippsland area.

You must attend both sessions in order to receive the RACGP approved 40 C.P.D Accredited Activity Points:

  • Friday July 17th 9am - 12.30pm
  • Friday July 24th 9am - 12.30pm

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. Predisposing and reinforcing activities must be completed pre and post attendance at this event.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Coordinate care for a person with an eating disorder with specialist services and community providers.
  • Evaluate the signs and symptoms of the different types of eating disorders.
  • Support patient engagement and disclosure for patients with an undiagnosed eating disorder.
  • Implement the use of HEADDS and SCOFF screening tools.
  • Assess the clinical risks associated with eating disorders.

Audience: GP focus, eating disorder treatment teams welcome
