Saturday 1 September | View program for more details
Eating disorders are serious, complex, diverse and treatable mental illnesses which affect 1 million Australians, from urban centres to the most remote parts of the country. People with eating disorders and their families can struggle to access services with the right level of capability in eating disorder management. This presentation will outline the competency framework for safe and effective management of eating disorders, with specific reference to the primary care workforce and the needs of their clients. Tools to support practice and service development and avenues for further professional development and support will be discussed.
