ARFID Study Session

Hosted jointly by Paediatric and Mental Health Specialist Group

Avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) is a relatively new term that was introduced in 2013. It has also previously been known as Selective Eating Disorder. Different healthcare professionals have found unique challenges in this group. It is becoming increasingly more common that this condition is appearing in new referrals as queries or as a formal diagnosis. The study day aims to address complexities of managing this patient group from the perspective of dietitians, parents and psychologists.
