GPs are often the first point of contact when seeking information and support on eating disorders.

As a GP, you are likely to be the first health professional a person with an eating disorder or carer will come in contact with. A GP’s role in the treatment of eating disorders can include prevention, identification, medical management in a primary care setting and referral (NEDC, 2015). 

Clinical Guidelines

Clinical Guidelines for Therapeutic Interventions in Eating Disorders. The Clinical Guidelines were written in 2021 by Dr. Jenny Gilmore in conjunction with Eating Disorders Qld.

These guidelines are based on best available evidence from research and literature, as well as the insights of EDQ practitioners. They offer a guide to providing community based care and support for both those living with eating disorders, and their loved ones and key supports.

Referring to Eating Disorders Queensland

EDQ is a self-referral clinic. We ask that all potential clients contact us in the first instance. GPs are welcome to send referral paperwork or GP reports to EDQ (via email), and we will keep it on file until such time as the client reaches out. We do not have the capacity to contact each client that is referred to us.
