Developing training to support children and young people with an eating disorder
We're commissioning training that supports the 'Access and Waiting Time Standard and Commissioning Guidance for Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder' published by the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health and NHS England in August 2015.
An integral part of the children and young people’s mental health programme in NHS England is to build capacity and capability and improve delivery of mental health care. As part of the programme, they are building on CYP IAPT systemic family practice for eating disorders curriculum to develop further curricula and a whole team training specification to improve access to evidence based interventions for children and young people with an eating disorder.
We'll be working with NHS England to set up an evidence based eating disorder team specification and curricula group to develop:
- a whole team training specification
- curriculum for each evidence based therapeutic modality for the treatment of eating disorders.
The eating disorder whole-team training specification and curricula will be delivered by educational providers and training practitioners to support teams to deliver NICE compliant evidence-based eating disorder interventions.
