The ICHOM Set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for Eating Disorders is the result of hard work by a group of leading clinicians, researchers, and patients. It is our recommendation of the outcomes that matter most to patients with eating disorders. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.

  1. Eating Disorder symptoms (except ARFID) reported with EDE-Q in adolescents and adults (15+ years) and ChEAT in children (8-14 years).
  2. ARFID symptoms in children reported with NIAS (age 10+ years) or EDY-Q (age 7-13 years). ARFID symptoms in adults reported with NIAS.
  3. Includes Depression Symptoms, Anxiety Symptoms and Suicidal Ideation.
  4. Depression Symptoms and Anxiety Symptoms in children and adolescents reported with RCADS-25. Depression Symptoms and Suicidal Ideation in adolescencts and adults reported with PHQ-2 and PHQ-9. Anxiety Symptoms in adults reported with GAD-2 and GAD-9.
  5. Reported via the KIDSCREEN-10 for children, and with the 12-item WHODAS 2.0 (general quality of life) and CIA (eating disorder-specific quality of life and social functioning) in adults.
  6. Includes: Work/School and Interpersonal relationships

All of the basic information you need to implement ICHOM Sets is available in the links above. However, for a faster, more easily integrated process, we offer digitised versions of the Set measures. These are designed for immediate upload to existing EMR systems. This is available as part of our Accreditation package, which recognises your work in putting patient outcomes at the heart of treatment.
