Eating disorders can affect every system in the body, but it’s not always obvious that an eating disorder is the cause. This means that someone might be suffering from an eating disorder but approach a healthcare professional about apparently unrelated symptoms.
Delivered by clinicians with extensive experience in the field of eating disorders, Beyond the Symptoms is ideal for GPs, nurses, dentists, cardiologists, and many other healthcare professionals. It aims to help you identify when a patient has an eating disorder and confidently intervene early.
"A clearly presented, comprehensive course... It is well-referenced and there is plenty of good visual content to the slides to reinforce the key points. The resources provided to the learners – especially the extensive references provided for further learning – are strong. The course is well-constructed with a clear agenda."
This is a structured and interactive workshop delivered over Zoom as either one full day or two half days. This course is currently funded through different CCGs across the country and bookings will be taken through your CCG.
You will reflect on your own practice and share stories and experiences within groups. This course will also include presentations, putting learning into practice, understanding Beat’s services and signposting to local services. Where possible you will hear from a Beat Ambassador on their lived experience of an eating disorder and develop an action plan to end the day.
