Boys and Men Service Redesign

We are partnering with University of Nottingham, Health Humanities on a study workshop to capture opinion, feedback and existing patient experience to inform new service developments specifically form“Eating Disorders in Boys and Men”.

We have invited 50 people and professionals with specific exert experience of current services from across a range of sector and settings for a full day working group event on 11th December 2019 (9:00-16:00) hosted by Health Humanities at The University of Nottingham (Lead: Dr Heike Bartel) and First Steps ED (Lead: Kevin Parkinson, CEO).

This event will involve presentations by academics, practitioners and males with experience of eating disorders and compulsive exercise.

Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a number of case study workshops, discussion panels and in the development of a new UoN HELM online learning and teacher resource which First Steps ED is investing in to make available to professionals working in support services for males.

This event will help to inform new care models and future service redesign informed by research at The University of Nottingham and intended to be adopted by First Steps ED as the East Midlands Eating Disorder charity to help reduce the stigma males experience when seeking support.

The event will be an excellent opportunity to network with up to 50 like-minded professionals and researchers with an academic interest in supporting individuals struggling with eating disorders. 

Taking place at the Amenities Building on Jubilee Campus at University of Nottingham between 9:00 and 16:00, lunch will be provided.
