A continuing education course to start the conversation of the role of Naturopathic Doctors in both treating and preventing perpetuation of eating disorders.

What We Will Cover

  • How to better understand the climate that surrounds disordered eating and stress around food

  • How to properly assess patients and screen for disordered eating.

  • What an eating disorder actually is - including how they are diagnosed, and understanding the different types of eating disorders. This includes looking at the different factors that can lead to the development of an eating disorder.

  • How eating disorders exist in Naturopathic Practice. We will go through how to screen for an eating disorder in your own practice and the ways that NDs can actually worsen/trigger an eating disorder if not identified properly.

  • The different types of treatments available for disordered eating and examine the up and coming role of naturopathic medicine in the role of eating disorder treatment.

Who This Is For

This is for any Naturopathic Doctor who wants to further their knowledge about how to properly screen, assess, and treat eating disorders appropriately in their practice. We strongly feel every ND should take this course so they are aware of the risks they pose to patients, and also understand how to prevent perpetuation of eating disorders in their practice!

Continuing Education Credits

Completion of this course will provide a certificate for 2 Category A Credits for Ontario NDs (CONO). This course is not yet approved for CE credits in other jurisdictions.
