A lack of active engagement of families and carers in clinical care of a person with an eating disorder provide an environment where eating disorders are more likely to thrive and persist.
EDFA knows families and carers welcome a clear mandate and strategies to enable them to play a key role in the care team.
EDFA will facilitate or advocate for clinicians to:
- Better appreciate the value of allying with families and carers
- Access standards for families’ and carers’ involvement in treatment
- Develop organisational/clinical capacity for inclusion
