dc.description.abstract This study will focus on the knowledge of eating disorders among general practitioners (GPs) in Cork city and county. There is a substantial amount of evidence available which indicates that GPs do not have sufficient knowledge to tackle the treatment of eating disorders or do not feel that they have adequate resources to treat eating disorders (Clarke & Polimeni Walker, 2004, Hoek & van Hoeken, 2003, Linville et al, 2010, Mond et al, 2012, Ogg & Millar, 1997, Whitehouse et al, 1992,). However research also overwhelmingly suggests that primary care facilities such as GPs’ offices, are ideally suited to early identification of eating disorders (Clarke & Polimeni-Walker, 2004, Linville et al., 2010, Mond et al., 2010, Ogg & Millar, 1997). en
