Care for People of All Ages
This quality standard addresses care for people of all ages with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or binge-eating disorder. It applies to all care settings.
Although many statements may apply to avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), as well as other specified and unspecified eating disorders, this quality standard does not directly address the management of these conditions. This quality standard also does not address pica or rumination disorder.
Ontario Health’s Transitions from Youth to Adult Health Care Services and Transitions Between Hospital and Home quality standards provide further guidance on transitions in care and may be applicable to people with an eating disorder.
Mental Health and Addictions Centre of Excellence
The Mental Health and Addictions Centre of Excellence was established within Ontario Health and is the foundation on which a mental health and addictions strategy is developed and maintained. This strategy recognizes that mental health and addictions care is a core component of an integrated health care system. The centre’s role is to ensure that mental health and addictions care is:
Delivered consistently across the province
Integrated with the broader health system
More easily accessible
Responsive to diverse needs of people living in Ontario and their families
The centre will also help implement the Roadmap to Wellness, the province’s plan to build a comprehensive and connected mental health and addictions system.
This quality standard was completed in March 2023.
