About the course

This one-day online simulation learning course is designed for clinical staff working in general adult psychiatry settings, general medical settings, primary care, and social care for adults.

We will explore common eating disorder presentations in the general setting.

The course will give participants the opportunity to be involved in a series of simulated scenarios using actors and will use an established debrief model to assist participants to learn positively and constructively from this experience. We aim to include members of the interprofessional team for each delivery, including medical doctors, psychiatrists, RMNs, primary care nurses, nurse practitioners, and medical nurses, dieticians, family therapists, social workers, and support workers working within mental health and acute medical services.

National guidance and practitioners with lived experience have been consulted in the development of this course.
