Training and education services
QuEDS provides education to health professionals throughout Queensland to facilitate skill development to assess and treat people with eating disorders.
A range of training opportunities are offered throughout the year including regular in-service days on inpatient care, adult outpatient treatments, management in primary care, as well as other dietetic, psychological and nursing care topics on request.
Training is open to workers in the public sector, private practice and community based professionals. Training can be developed in accordance with the local area or individual service development needs.
QuEDS is staffed by a specialised multidisciplinary team including psychiatrists, psychiatric registrars, psychologists, social workers, dietitians, occupational therapists and mental health nurses. We also regularly consult with carers and consumer representatives.
QuEDS has established partnerships with the University of Queensland (UQ), Queensland University of Technology (QUT), and the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR). We are happy to collaborate on grant applications and research projects with other organisations or to students on clinical or research placements.
We partner with a range of other government and non-government organisations to deliver training, consultation treatment and research. QuEDS values the expertise of those with lived experience in the planning, development, delivery and evaluation of our services.
