Applications for the ANZAED Eating Disorder Credential now open

Mental health professionals providing treatment for people experiencing eating disorders, in both public and private settings, can now apply for the ANZAED Eating Disorder Credential. 

Funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, the ANZAED Eating Disorder Credential provides formal recognition of qualifications, knowledge, training, and professional development activities needed to meet minimum standards for delivery of safe and effective eating disorder treatment. Once credentialed, clinicians will be given access to an online platform where they can build a profile, enabling people experiencing eating disorders, their support networks and referring professionals to find and connect with them as a treatment provider. 

An additional aim of the Credential is to grow the eating disorder workforce so that people experiencing eating disorders can access the right care at the right time. To help build the eating disorder treatment workforce, the credentialing system offers: 

Professional Development Packages, with the support of NEDC, which include free training and supervision opportunities for clinicians who only meet part of the criteria or are just starting out their practise in eating disorders. 

Limited Evidence Sunset Clause which enables written evidence to be submitted until 30th June 2022, for clinicians currently practising in eating disorders who may not have undertaken training in the mode prescribed or may not have record of having done so. 

Applications for the Credential are free until 30th June 2022.
