Prevention and Recovery: Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating • HLTH 9000

Individuals struggling with eating disorders and disordered eating deserve to be served by professionals with relevant and precise knowledge and competencies in the eating disorder field.

There is an urgent need for this training: for professionals already employed, to continue their staff roles, for employers who need to maintain hospital units focused on the treatment of critically diagnosed patients, and the for early intervention and long-term recovery for those who want help to avoid hospitalization, are waiting to enter hospital, or who need follow-up after leaving hospital.

This online course uses efficient, effective and flexible methods for the transfer/application of module readings, assignments and exams.

The foundation of this course is the application of eating disorder/disorder eating concepts to the workplace. The quality of care provided to clients struggling with this devastating illness, will improve as cohorts of learners form communities of practice to transfer and share their new professional competencies.
