Signal card eating disorders for general practitioners

To support general practitioners in identifying an eating disorder, the Kiem Foundation has developed the eating disorders signal card together with K-EET, PsyQ and individual experts. The signals card is also a handy tool for dietitians and other healthcare professionals. The map is available digitally and gives a clear picture of it symptoms associated with the most common eating disorders.

Recognize earlier and better

The national chain approach to eating disorders (K-EET) has been working since 2019 on solutions to make the chain of eating disorders run more smoothly. One of the objectives is to recognize symptoms of an eating disorder or eating problem earlier and better. Early identification and therefore earlier use of appropriate intervention is crucial in the development and recovery of eating disorders. The sooner an eating disorder is recognized and treated, the greater the chance of recovery. The person himself often has no awareness of the disease or insight into the disease. It is often difficult for those around you to recognize an eating disorder.

Signals card

The eating disorders signal card has been developed for general practitioners, but is also a useful tool for other care providers to identify eating disorders more quickly. The signals card provides information about the most common types of eating disorders and describes possible signals in eating behavior and triggers. The signals card also describes points for attention for the anamnesis, the somatic examination and the diagnosis, as well as information about triage and refer.
