WA Eating Disorders Outreach & Consultation Service (WAEDOCS)

WA Eating Disorders Outreach & Consultation Service (WAEDOCS) is a state-wide service that aims to ensure youth and adults in WA with an eating disorder can access optimal best practice care. This will be facilitated through up-skilling and inspiring health care professionals to deliver evidence-based high quality eating disorders care.

WAEDOCS is a multi-disciplinary team comprising a nurse practitioner, consultant clinical psychologist, consultant liaison psychiatrist, specialist physician, senior dietitian, clinical nurse specialist (mental health) and peer support worker.

What we provide

  • Consultation liaison, clinician mentoring and support to help clinicians to manage their patient(s)
  • Clinician training and education
  • Resources to guide safe inpatient management of people with eating disorders.

What we are unable to provide

  • Case management or governance for or of the patient
  • Treatment and/or support directly to patients and/or significant others
