2019-10-21 12:45:35 | BioPortfolio


This is a naturalistic study implementing a routine assessment to monitor the evolution of the patients with eating disorders being treated in various centers of "ITA Salud Mental" in Spain.


"ITA Salud Mental" offers integrated treatment for eating disorders including outpatient, inpatient and day hospital care. The routine assessment implemented to this aim includes both general measures to gauge the therapeutic progress (CORE system) and measures specific for eating disorders (EAT, BITE), which are administered from the beginning to the end of treatment in different time points combined with clinical data included in the patients' health record such as diagnosis, body mass index, previous treatments, and chronicity. The analysis of these data will permit to evaluate the therapeutic effects of this integrated treatment and the factors which might influence the outcomes.
