Condition

Mental and Behavioural Disorders: Anorexia nervosa

Intervention

A computerised intervention for carers of people with anorexia nervosa has been developed in the SLaM Eating Disorders Unit. This CD-ROM contains 9 interactive modules, which teach carers disease- and self-management skills.

A cohort of carers of people with anorexia nervosa will be offered to access the CD-ROM in the eating disorders clinic over 6 to 8 weeks or to take it home. An assessment of carer and patient variables will be conducted prior to starting the CD-ROM, at 8 weeks and at follow up 2 months later.

A randomised controlled trial will compare Anorexia Nervosa carers recruited via the Eating Disorders Association comparing CD-Rom vs informal support offered via the Eating Disorders Association
