The National Eating Disorders Collaboration(NEDC), funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, has developed a nationally recognised and freely accessible online training, Eating Disorder Core Skills: eLearning for GPs.
This comprehensive foundational eating disorder training has been developed specifically for GPs. The training will equip GPs with the knowledge and skills needed to understand, identify and assess eating disorders, provide medical treatment, lead the multidisciplinary team, manage MBS items and provide ongoing recovery support.
This four-hour, self-paced and interactive online training includes practical real-life scenarios and activities, videos from leaders in the field and people with a lived experience of an eating disorder, up to date resources and a formal assessment.
