NIED has taken great care to produce educational and informational resources that can help people improve communication between members of a care team, improve collaboration between care team members and improve transitions between levels of care and between different care settings.

NIED has created these educational and informational resources as an adjunct to clinical information that a primary care provider may give their client, patient or their caregiver.

Finally, consistent with clinical practice guidelines related to Eating Disorders, NIED believes that the trust relationship between a person, their care provider and caregiver are essential to recovery from an Eating Disorder.  By providing you with the educational and informational resources on our website, NIED does not intend to replace the therapeutic alliance and relationship between visitors to our site and their caregivers, providers, patients or clients.
