Eating Disorders in Primary Care and Community-Based Clinics: Tools and Resources for the Clinician

Eating disorders are underdetected and undertreated, particularly as many individuals with these conditions do not have obvious signs or symptoms. Healthcare providers working in primary care and/or community-based settings can make a difference by addressing eating disorders as early as possible. To date, screening for these conditions has been challenging given the lack of specific strategies that fit the needs of primary care and/or community-based practice. In this webinar, we will discuss NCEED’s novel tool: Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment for Eating Disorders (SBIRT-ED), and the ways in which it can be used to increase detection of eating pathology and referrals to specialty care.
