Canadian Eating Disorders Priority-Setting Partnership
Please read the letter below from CEDPSP and then give your voice to identify Canadian research priorities for the field of Eating Disorders by March 23, 2018.

Dear Collaborators of the Canadian Eating Disorders Priority Setting Partnership

As you know, we’ve been working together to gather the top research priorities for adolescent females (15 years +) and women affected by anorexia nervosa, and we are thankful for your continued support in this project. It is especially important for us to hear the perspectives of those with lived experience, caregivers and healthcare professionals. We are excited to announce that the CEDPSP’s national survey is live! At this time, we are hopeful that you’d be willing to help by:

  1. Filling out this short, 3-question survey, available in both English and French until March 23rd to share your perspective as to what the most important research gaps are: CEDPSP Survey
  2. Kindly distributing the survey link to your respective networks by forwarding it through e-mail to your distribution lists, sharing the survey on your social media platforms, and posting it on your organization’s website and e-newsletters.
  3. Using your organization’s Twitter and Facebook accounts to post the Tweets and Facebook messages we’ve attached to this e-mail. Along with the messages, we’ve provided you with a message to include in your newsletter and a proposed timeline for sharing these social media messages.

More information about the project, as well as the link to the survey, can be found on our website. Your support with this part of the project is vital and we want to thank-you in advance for helping to reach as many people as possible across Canada so they can share their opinions.

We are here to support you – if you have any questions or suggestions on how to share this more widely, please let us know.

Thank-you for your ongoing support for this project,
Nicole Obeid & Gail McVey
