Digital App: Eating Disorder’s Examination Questionnaire (EDE-Q)

Online EDE-Q

The EDE-Q is one of the most commonly used tools in screening and assessment of Eating Disorder. It is quite helpful to repeat it periodically to track progress of the cognition’s during the course of FBT or CBT-E.

With permission from Prof Chris Fairburn we have progressed to develop and include the EDE-Q in the suit of outcome measures and clinical scales. This allows a clinician to administer the 28 questions screening questionnaire on any smart device. The responses can also be submitted before or between appointments remotely from home by patient/s.

Once the responses are submitted, the back-end of the App uses its automated scoring logic to instantly score the ratings as per sub-domains. Significantly, we can acquire multiple responses at different times and get the scores superimposed for comparison. Further, the scores are categorised as per norms developed by White et al (2014) for adolescent girls and boys. An example is shown below using test data.
