Abstract

This paper describes the effectiveness of a 6-hour education programme to provide skills, knowledge and support to carers about how to best support patients with eating disorders. Based on a philosophy of mutual and ongoing support and learning, this programme brought together community groups of professionals, carers and advocates to present and participate in the programme. Pretest and post-test measures of the programme's effectiveness were administered to 81 participants (N = 81) across multiple-programme presentations in different locations in the USA. A paired form of analysis showed significant effect sizes on carers' knowledge, skill and understanding of eating disorders. Copyright © 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd and Eating Disorders Association.
