Tackling Eating Disorders in Sport

Our aim with Tackling Eating Disorders in Sport is to create a course which will educate learners about the symptoms and signs of different eating disorders as well as how to take steps to treat these.

Key learning outcomes are:

  • Understand what eating disorders are
  • Recognise the spectrum of eating behavior in athletes
  • Consider the prevalence in sport
  • Understand the consequences on health and performance 
  • See how to identify and treat the disorders

The course will culminate in an assessment, which will see you awarded with a certificate and CPD points on successful completion.

‘A fantastic course with insightful and relevant learning throughout, backed up by fantastic resources that can be utilised immediately.
