Evidence informed dietetic practice elevates your role as the community dietitian in eating disorder care. This training is designed to enhance dietitians’ skill and knowledge to safely and effectively, identify and treat those suffering with eating disorders in a range of presentations. There is an emerging dietetic workforce across all levels of the health system in Victoria, particularly in the community. This training seeks to prepare you to confidently navigate complexities and bridging the gaps to provide collaborative and cohesive treatment. As referrals to treat eating disorders are on the rise in Victoria, we seek to better respond to the demand for quality and timely intervention. As such dietitians are often first responders to eating disorders but also are key in ongoing support to clients and clinicians.
This is a new training recently developed by CEED, we bring our expertise in delivering a range of evidence-based treatment training programs and education over the past two decades that prepares clinicians in working with those effected by eating disorders. This training was developed and is being facilitated by Jessica Gomularz and Kate Noble with consultations from lived experience consumers and carers, mental health clinicians and other senior dietitians.
The training will involve didactic, interactive, and experiential practice opportunities.

This event will cover:

  • Capacity to identify and respond to disordered eating, integrate screening tools and assume responsibility as a first responder
  • An understanding on how to adapt a nutrition assessment as appropriate for various presentations
  • An understanding on how to use targeted evidence informed nutrition interventions
  • An understanding of care team formation, including supports, and of maintaining team collaboration and cohesion in treatment
  • Capacity to adapt dietetic care to work with a variety of psychological treatment modalities
  • Increased understanding of counselling skills that best apply to clients with eating disorders
