  • Shared Care covers referring to appropriate services in the stepped system of care for eating disorders, understanding and working in the multidisciplinary care team, and engaging families and supports.
  • Treatment provides an understanding of mental health treatment, medical care, nutrition support and stepping up care and/or referral pathways
