Research Participation | Road testing a guide to finding a therapist for the treatment of an eating disorder

What is the study about?
A team of researchers and consumers have developed a checklist that can help consumers navigate the process of establishing the suitability of potential private treatment providers.

Who can participate?
We wish to obtain feedback from consumers with an eating disorder, or family members involved in treatment, or treatment providers, who would be willing to comment on a preliminary version of the checklist. Feedback will be used in the ongoing development of the checklist. 

What will I be asked to do?
The survey will ask you to provide demographic information and then get you to rate each item in the checklist for suitability. The online survey will ask open questions such as “What is the most/least helpful aspect(s) of the checklist?” and should take no more than 20 minutes to complete.
