The co-designed Australian Eating Disorders Research and Translation Strategy 2021-2031 was the first of its kind for the illness group and laid the foundations for the work of the Centre.

To inform the strategy, a Rapid Review (RR) was conducted to broadly assess the literature across the spectrum of eating disorders. Regularly used by major health governing bodies such as the World Health Organisation (WHO), Rapid Reviews provide expedient, actionable evidence to guide health policy. They follow systematic guidelines (PRISMA-RR), prioritising high-level evidence such as meta-analyses, systematic reviews, RCTs and epidemiological studies.

The following pages provide a thorough review of the Eating Disorder evidence published between 2009-2021.

1320 studies are summarised in nine topic areas. Interact with the evidence summarised in the Rapid Reviews in the menu bar on the left.

Research can transform people's lives.

The Australian Eating Disorders Research and Translation Centre is supported by funding from the Australian Government under the National Leadership in Mental Health program.

Lead Agency, InsideOut Institute for Eating Disorders, is a joint venture between the Sydney Local Health District and the University of Sydney
