The aim/purpose of the NIG:
The group wants to create research collaboration with a main focus on the diagnosis of eating disorders. The diagnosis of ED has been discussed since they were first defined and as they are continuously being both questioned and changed research is still needed.


The newly published DSM-5 criteria need validation and it will soon be the case also with the ICD classification which is being revised resulting in ICD-11 within a few years. The changes affect research and clinical practice and consequences of the changes made needs elucidation.
