Description

Summary

This is a randomized controlled trial for mental health clinicians comparing two methods of training in family-based treatment (FBT) for restrictive eating disorders.

Official Title

Dissemination and Implementation of Family-Based Treatment in Publicly-Funded Clinics: Optimizing Provider Training in Eating Disorders (OPTED)

Details

This is a randomized controlled trial for mental health clinicians comparing two methods of training in family-based treatment (FBT) for restrictive eating disorders. Clinicians who treat youth and accept Medicaid insurance within a predetermined group of participating California counties will be randomized to receive either web-based training (WBT) or live two-day training in FBT. Data will be collected on the feasibility, acceptability, appropriateness, and effectiveness of the training (web-based vs. live). Following training, a subset of clinicians may opt into group consultation for one year. Consultation groups will be kept separate by training condition. Data will also be collected from clinicians on the extent to which they perceive the treatment itself (i.e., FBT) as feasible, acceptable, and appropriate for Medicaid-insured youth. In addition to implementation outcomes, de-identified clinical data will be collected from providers about their cases up to one year following the initial training.
