Eating Disorder Examination Interview

The Eating Disorder Examination Interview (EDE) is a semi-structured interview conducted by a clinician that has been modified to reflect the current DSM-5 diagnosis. The EDE is rated using four subscales; restraint, eating concern, shape concern and weight concern. Patients are asked about the frequency of their eating disorder behaviours over a 28-day period.
