Develop your community Eating Disorder service for CYP in accordance with the latest guidelines

One of the key deliverables for 2015/2016 of the CAMHS Local Transformation Plans is the development of evidence based community Eating Disorder services for children and young people. On top of that, services need to be working towards meeting guidelines for new access and waiting time standards for Children and Young People with an eating disorder. This forum provides a space for the whole multidisciplinary team from CYP eating disorder services to come together and get the information and advice they need on driving community-based services forward and meeting access and waiting time standards.

An event for the whole multidisciplinary team

•    Hear best practice in commissioning community-based eating disorder services for young people

•    Get practical advice on developing or expanding a community-base  CYP eating disorder service

•    Idnetify how to meet waiting time targets and keep young people out of hospital

•    Streamline the transition to adult eating disorder services

•    Set up and deliver an intensive home treatment service for adolescent eating disorders

•    Improve early intervention through delivering rapid assessment and flexible treatment in the community
