ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results of two studies of psychiatrists in Great Britain and the U.S. as of January 2014, which highlighted several gaps in the overall knowledge of treating patients with eating disorders and bias toward obese patients. In the study by Dr. William R. Jones of the Yorkshire Centre for Eating Disorders in Leeds, England and colleagues, they tested the mental literacy of psychiatrists about eating disorders. Among those tested are from the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
