Eating Disorders in Primary Care: A Novel Tool for Screening and Referral

Primary care providers (PCPs) are in a unique position to screen patients for eating disorders, particularly those who may not display obvious signs or symptoms. To date, screening for these conditions has been challenging given the lack of primary care-specific strategies that fit the needs of a busy clinical practice. In this webinar, we will discuss NCEED’s novel primary care 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.
