Re: Eating disorders in children and young people
In response to Dr Natt's comment, we agree. We did not mention the use of screening questionnaires as we feel that sensitive history taking, including a collateral history, is likely to be more effective in identifying and engaging young people with eating disorders. The NICE guidance on eating disorders advises that screening tools are not used in isolation, due to insufficient good quality evidence for their use. The SC0FF was designed for use in adults, and has only been tested in that age group.
