Eating disorders CPG and associated resources
Guidance on the clinical treatment of people with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and ARFID.
Clinical Practice Guidelines are evidence-based documents that include recommendations intended to optimise patient care and assist health care practitioners to make decisions about appropriate health care for specific clinical circumstances. Clinical Practice Guidelines issued by RANZCP have a limited life. They are regularly reviewed and will be updated in light of appropriate new evidence that may emerge.
Key practice points
- Care for people with eating disorders should be provided within a recovery-oriented practice framework.
- Unless contraindicated, family or significant others should be enlisted as partners in the assessment and treatment process.
- Multidisciplinary care is needed to ensure that the individual gets access to the combined medical, dietetic and psychological interventions required.
- Treatment should occur across a continuum of care and settings, including outpatient, intensive outpatient with meal support, day program and inpatient treatment.
The following webinar provides information about the guideline and is accredited for CPD under section 4.6.
