Post-Acute Interventions for the Treatment of Anorexia Nervosa (R34...

By National Institutes of Health
Government Grant





NIMH seeks applications for pilot projects to evaluate the preliminary effectiveness of interventions targeting sustained and enhanced treatment response following acute treatment for anorexia nervosa (AN). An emphasis is placed on trials that go beyond seeking incremental gains in intervention effects, and instead take a theory-driven, empirical approach to developing and testing interventions that will have a significant impact on weight restoration and psychological symptoms associated with AN. Consistent with an effectiveness framework, studies should take a deployment-focused approach to intervention development and testing, acknowledging that many patients will receive post-acute treatment from community providers unaffiliated with specialty eating disorder centers.
