A psychiatrist with extensive experience in this subspecialty will review and examine evidence, patient case studies and the available diagnostic and treatment options available to General Practitioners. This activity will also assist GPs in formulating referral strategies with patients and their families, whilst establishing their role within a broader multidisciplinary team.

  • Describe the symptoms of disturbances in eating behaviour as they present in the various eating disorders;
  • Discuss the socio-cultural, psychological and biological risk factors that may contribute to the development of disordered eating;
  • Explain the screening tools that can be used to conduct an initial evaluation and identify warning signs;
