Earlier recognition and treatment of eating disorders

It is important that eating disorders are recognised sooner and treated more quickly. That improves the chances of recovery. A national, uniform approach can help to achieve this. The Health Council of the Netherlands has also identified a need for more knowledge about eating disorders, among patients themselves and their environment and among healthcare professionals. The Council recommends to invest in further research into the early recognition and treatment of eating disorders.
