NSW eating disorders toolkit

The NSW eating disorders toolkit aims to assist health professionals in applying best-practice principles in non-specialist inpatient settings in NSW. The Toolkit aims to assist with improving access to practical information, to facilitate consultation with specialist staff and to improve consistency of care for children and adolescents with eating disorders across NSW.

The Toolkit has been developed to provide practical information on key components of care for children and adolescents admitted with an eating disorder including:

• Triage in the Emergency Department;

• Assessment;

• Identifying those in need of admission;

• Admitting the patient;

• Accessing specialist assistance;

• Treatment planning;

• Implementing treatment (primarily medical, nutritional and psychological aspects);

• Involving the family and other health professionals;

• Transition from inpatient care; and

• Accessing further information and support.
