Becoming a Discriminating Consumer of Treatment Outcomes

Learn to become a discriminating consumer of eating recovery treatment outcome data. Read this booklet provided by Eating Recovery Center to understand some of the difficulties researchers face in measuring eating disorder treatment effectiveness and how to critically evaluate data that is presented.

One of the greatest frustrations that families report is trying to obtain outcome results from eating disorder treatment programs. A comprehensive review of treatment program websites indicates that very few report any data-based outcomes and data that are reported generally lack research rigor. The information in this booklet is designed to help patients, families, and professionals understand some of the difficulties researchers face in measuring eating disorder treatment effectiveness and how to critically evaluate data that is presented.  Patient satisfaction and treatment effectiveness data from Eating Recovery Center is presented with the intention of reporting on our outcomes and providing examples of how to become a discriminating consumer of outcome data.
