    Online Course | National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine - East Midlands

    National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine - East Midlands

    Close attention to diet and weight is critical for success in many sports but for some athletes this can develop into an unhealthy relationship with food. Differentiating between what is ‘normal’ for an athlete; and identifying those with potentially disordered eating habits is challenging. Coaches are ideally positioned to detect the early warning signs of potential eating problems. This course has been designed to equip the audience with the knowledge and skills to identify eating problems in athletes; and to provide guidance around approaching; supporting and facilitating access to treatment.
