The Foundation Meets with the Minister of Health and Continues its Efforts for an Inpatient Eating Disorder Intensive Care Program
The Foundation met with the Minister of Health last week to continue our discussion for an Inpatient Program for our eating disorder families. It was a very good and productive session and hopefully it contributed to our ongoing efforts for such a program; the Minister is listening. Please see the below Justification Case for an Inpatient Program which we presented to the Minister for his consideration. It certainly appears there is now total consensus amongst eating disorder stakeholders that such a program is needed. I would ask our eating disorder families to discuss the need for this program with your MHA’s and other healthcare leadership officials as they need to better understand the inpatient healthcare needs for eating disorder families. The personal stories are helping, please continue to do what you can to help us achieve a more positive outcome. We are making good progress and I am optimistic that in time we will be successful.
I wrote the following article (see below this message) in an effort to highlight and advocate the critical need for an Intensive Care Eating Disorder Inpatient Program. As the article states this is urgently needed and has to be given a higher priority by our healthcare leadership. It would be helpful and proactive if we could join together and lobby our politicians, healthcare officials and interested stakeholder groups to respond sooner than later as this is a matter of life and death for some of our eating disorder families. Families have significant power when it comes to influencing our politicians to act more decisively and I call on you in your various capacities to do what you can to help us achieve our objective.
Thanks for your ongoing support,
Chairperson, Eating Disorder Foundation of NL (more…)
