A new animated 60-mins course voiced by male experts by experience provides insight, clinical top tips, evidence-informed advice and treatment guidance. The course was developed by The University of Nottingham (Heike Bartel) and KCL (Una Foye) with clinical and creative partners, men with lived experience and eating disorders charities.

Eating Disorders Training for Medical Students and Foundation Doctors

This training was developed in response to the PHSO investigation into avoidable deaths from eating disorders as outlined in recommendations from the report titled Ignoring the Alarms: How NHS Eating Disorder Services Are Failing Patients (PHSO, 2017). It is the result of collaboration between Beat, Health Education England and the Faculty of Eating Disorders and is designed to ensure that all medical students and foundation doctors are trained to understand, identify and respond appropriately when faced with a patient with a possible eating disorder.
