New online eating disorder learning on physical health assessments and monitoring

It aims to support staff members to:
- understand why physical health checks are needed

New online eating disorder learning for dietitians, oral health and community pharmacy teams
HEE has worked in partnership with NHS England and the charity Beat to create a suite of eating disorder learning materials for health and care staff. The suite now contains training materials to raise the awareness of eating disorders specifically for dietitians, oral health teams and community pharmacy teams which take the form of a series of pre-recorded webinars.
There are three eating disorder webinars for each professional group which are delivered by a healthcare professional who outlines individuals’ lived experience in varied settings. The webinars also direct the learner to further reading and also reflect the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ new Medical Emergencies in Eating Disorders (MEED) guidance. Each webinar takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and can be undertaken at the learner’s own pace.
