CPD Opportunities

Anorexia and Bulimia Care have developed the first online training course in eating disorders for GPs, in association with the Royal College of General Practitioners. Created to help broaden your knowledge of feeding and eating disorders, better support your patients and help you go beyond CPD accreditation.

With a reach of over 90,000 primary health care professionals and with credits towards CPD and revalidation, this course establishes best practice for GPs in their care for patients. This is vital as waiting times for more specialist services are so long; because many patients prefer to rely only on their GP; and since many are deemed ineligible for further care and support. With only 46% of those recovering from an eating disorder, and increasing prevalence, GPs are under increasing pressure to monitor and safeguard the physical health of these vulnerable patients and also deliver care, support and signposting for parents and partners. The course was examined and approved in two rounds of peer review through GP members of the Royal College, practicing in various parts of the UK and then by the RCGP’s Director of E-learning.
