Webinar: Screening, Symptom Recognition & Referral to Treatment for Eating Disorders in Pediatric Primary Care Settings

Type: News Tags: HRSA, Webinar

Date:  Tuesday, November 6
Time: 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET

Effective treatments for a range of eating disorders (EDs) are well established, yet the majority of those who struggle with an ED never receive treatment. In recent years, there has been a growing call for clinical training for pediatric primary care providers focused on how to recognize the signs and symptoms of eating disorders in children, adolescents, and young adults, as well as how to perform screening and appropriately refer patients to specialized care. To answer this call, the HHS Office on Women’s Health is offering a new online clinical education program developed by the Strategic Training Initiative for the Prevention of Eating Disorders, based at Boston Children’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, in partnership with the Eating Disorders Coalition.

Several resources for health care providers will also be provided, including a demonstration of an online interactive tool to identify local eating disorders specialists.
