Adult Eating Disorders: new steps…

I met with the manager of the my trust adult eating disorders team yesterday. They are joining two local teams and were looking for a service model to bring the services together. She had heard of CAPA in CAMHS in my trust and wanted to know if it might help.

Initially we talked about the numbers and how to work out treatment (Partnership) activity. As that maths is simply based on the number of contacts a clinician can do if a half day and the average treatment duration, finding the right multiplier for her service would be fine

She could see that the collaborative stance with patients, the peer group discussion and layering skills in her particular service into the specific specialist skills and extended core versions of these would really make a transparent, open service. It’s really exciting to work with a new team and service area and to work more on not translating CAPA into adult mental health but thinking about the principles of CAPA and how they work in a wide range of services – system free CAPA!

I’m going to go to the next team meeting to talk with everyone as a taster.
