As the final event of the International Conference on Eating Disorders, the Research-Practice Think Tank provides an opportunity for reflection and discussion of issues that are critical to conference attendees. This year’s session will include 4 discussants (two patient/carer discussants, a full-time clinician, and a clinician-investigator). After the co-chairs define evidence-based practice, each panelist will speak for up to 8 minutes on their best and worst experiences related to evidence-based treatment or research-practice integration, as well as their view of the ICED’s success at integrating research and practice, including where there might be room for improvement. In addition to exchanging views during the session, conference attendees will have the opportunity to contribute research/practice-related discussion questions or comments in advance of the Think Tank session by using a unique hashtag (such as #ICEDThinkTank) on Twitter.
By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:
1. Describe two reasons why research-practice integration is desirable for our field.
2. Discuss two challenges related to research-practice integration in eating disorders.
3. Critically appraise the degree to which the 2017 ICED program modeled research-practice integration.
