Academy Supports Modifications to USPSTF on Eating Disorders Research Plan

The Academy provided input to the United States Preventive Services Task Force's "Draft Research Plan: Screening for Eating Disorders in Adolescents and Adults."

The Academy suggested modifications to place "harm" in proper context and refine the research approach definitions of included populations, screening tools, therapies and outcomes. The Academy submitted comments to enhance the utility of the planned review, inform practice and improve patient outcomes, among which was inclusion of interventions which include medical nutrition therapy provided by RDNs as part of a health care team.
