Research: individual risk pathways for development of eating disorders during behavioural weight management

Research: individual risk pathways for development of eating disorders during behavioural weight management

We are pleased to offer you an opportunity to participate in research being conducted by the Eating Disorders In weight-related Therapy (EDIT) Collaboration.

The EDIT Collaboration is bringing together research data from clinical trials conducted globally to identify individual characteristics of a person and intervention components associated with risk of eating disorders in adolescents and adults who take part in weight management interventions. We are conducting a survey to inform the work of the Collaboration by identifying priority areas for analysis.

EDIT Consultation survey

You are invited to participate in a consultation survey being conducted by the Eating Disorders In weight-related Therapy (EDIT) Collaboration to canvass opinions on the risk factors associated with the development of eating disorder in weight management interventions. The specific aims of this project are to assess opinions on:

  1. Individual characteristics of a person which may contribute to the risk of developing an eating disorders in the context of weight management
  2. Strategies used within a weight management intervention which may increase or decrease risk of eating disorders

The results of this study will be used to inform research activities of the EDIT Collaboration which aims to determine individual risk pathways for the development of eating disorders during behavioural weight management.

You are asked to complete a survey via the link below which will take approximately 30-40 minutes. You are able to save your responses and return to complete the survey if you need to. Your responses to the survey are anonymous and confidential.

The survey can be accessed here https://tinyurl.com/598yda88 and is open until 4 March 2022.
