Participant Information

You are invited to take part in a research study exploring the priority areas for the National Eating Disorders Research and Translation Strategy 2020 - 2030.  This Participant Information Statement tells you about the research study - knowing what is involved will help you decide if you want to take part in the research. Please read this sheet carefully and ask questions about anything that you don’t understand or want to know more about.  


InsideOut, as part of The Boden Collaboration for Obesity, Nutrition, Exercise and Eating Disorders, The University of Sydney, is a national institute for research and clinical excellence in eating disorders. The Australian Government’s decision to fund the Australian Eating Disorders Research & Translation Strategy 2020-2030 (the Strategy) represents an important milestone in the recognition of eating disorders as a priority for research and health service improvement.  InsideOut has been undertaking the project, which commenced in 2019 and is due for completion in December 2020. 


This study aims to capture the top research and translation priorities for Australia as a result of an online survey and workshop, in association with the the James Lind Alliance (JLA). 

The JLA Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) methodology ensures there is equal representation from people who have a lived experience of an eating disorder, people who are family or carers of people with an eating disorder, as well as clinicians and researchers.


We are interested in what you think are the top research and translation priorities for Australian eating disorder researchers.  Once we have this information, the final stage of prioritisation will involve bringing together consumers, carers, clinicians and researchers to participate in an online workshop, conducted via Zoom to jointly define the top 10 priorities. 


Participation in this research study is voluntary.  

If you are 16 years or over, please complete the survey at the link below and help us determine the top 10 eating disorder research and translation priorities for Australia​.

If you have any questions, please contact InsideOut on 02 8627 5690  or by email at (Please put “Top 10 Priorities” in the subject line). 

If you feel distressed at any time, please call 1800 ED HOPE (1800 33 4673). 

This study has been approved by Sydney Local Health District Human Research Ethics Committee (X20-0339)
