Hello my lovely readers!
I just wanted to hop on here and apologize for the lack of updates and new courses recently.
My personal life has exploded and pushed online work to a back burner. To give you some perspective: I have just bought and sold a house (and in process of moving and dealing with contractors), am in my last semester of grad school (!), working 3 jobs (not even including online course work), and have the lead in a musical. I need to just focus on keeping everything from falling-apart right now.
I intend to start creating more courses in January and step it up in 2018. Please hang in here with me,and enjoy the free courses currently available.
Please let me know what you would like to learn about for future course creation!
e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I appreciate your patience in this time of transition.
2 more courses are now available (FREE)!
The First 2 FREE (!) courses are available!!!
Anorexia Nervosa: The Basics
Bulimia Nervosa: The Basics
Check out the courses at:
You will need to create a log-in, but it is completely free. I would love your feedback before creating more courses (including what you would like to see in future courses).
Make it a great day!
5-Question Screening Tool for Eating Disorders
I get it, as medical professionals you are go-go-go! How do you take the time to assess if someone has an eating disorder when they are not presenting?
In 1999, the “SCOFF Questionnaire” was developed to give providers a fast way to assess for Anorexia or Bulimia (false positive rate of only 12.5% for the controls – but maybe they developed one later, there was not commentary on follow up).
Answering “yes” to at least two of the following questions led to a nearly 100% positive diagnosis of anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa.
Ask your patient(s):
The SCOFF questions*
Although the authors’ state there is need for further testing to increase validity of the SCOFF questions, this questionnaire has been standard in various health care settings for many years.
Libby Parker, MS, RD, is a Registered Dietitian, finishing her CEDRD credentials. She works with eating disorders in various settings, and teaches college nutrition courses.
