Tweed Valley Clinical Society meeting on Eating Disorders. Network, discuss, learn and eat.

Eating disorders are complex, potentially life-threatening illnesses with significant medical and psychosocial consequences. Early detection and intervention can significantly contribute to better outcomes.
This clinical society meeting will assist you to provide best practice care for patients with eating disorders via support from the local health district. Equip yourself with the knowledge and skills needed to understand, identify and assess eating disorders, provide medical treatment, lead the multidisciplinary team, manage MBS items, and provide ongoing recovery support. Ask questions from the panel and others in the room, get to know local supports, and better understand the local referral options available to you. Free to attend, it includes a 2-course dinner.
