NEDC virtual launch of Management of eating disorders for people with higher weight: clinical practice guideline
NEDC are excited to launch an important new resource, Management of eating disorders for people with higher weight: clinical practice guideline.

Despite the high prevalence of people experiencing eating disorders and high weight, eating disorders are consistently under-recognised and under-treated in this population. People who are of higher weight and experiencing an eating disorder have often experienced delayed identification of the eating disorder, misdiagnoses in assessment, subsequent inappropriate and inadequate treatment and widespread stigma. Previously, there has been little to guide clinicians on the management of eating disorders for people with higher weight. This guideline addresses this important gap.

The Management of eating disorders for people with higher weight: clinical practice guideline has been developed by NEDC after extensive review and consultation throughout 2020-22. The guideline synthesises the current best practice approaches to management of eating disorders for people with higher weight.

We look forward to welcoming you to our launch on 19 August.
