Andreas Birgegård's research group
The overall aim of the program area eating disorders is to stimulate increased growth of long-term research projects treating current clinical problems and thus contributing to the development of knowledge regarding treatment of eating disorders.
Clinical research can be simplified considerably if care is provided based on standardized methods for assessment and monitoring.
Within the Stockholm area >90% of the patients starting specialized eating disorder treatment are registered in Stepwise, an extended quality registry consisting of scientifically standardized methods of diagnostics, assessment and self-assessment of symptoms.
Some examples of specific areas in need of increased attention within the research is the impact of biological factors for the onset of eating disorders, assessment and diagnostics of eating disorders, the presence of eating disorders in boys and men and the impact of self-image aspects and neuropsychiatric/neurocognitive factors.
