Recent Eat survey of EA patients

18 October 2014

Surgery is life saving, After-care is life enhancing

In July and August 2014, EAT conducted an inter­net-based international survey of parents/carers and EA patients which generated very nearly 1000 responses.

This survey contained 40 questions which, besides capturing each patient’s national­ity, date of birth, gender, height and weight, and initial condition, also covered a number of topics ranging from number of surgeries, follow-up/ after-care and the impact of the condition on matters such as family life, education, employment and personal/social relationships.

This article contains a summary of the results of this survey; however it is EAT’s intention to analyse further these results and to produce a more detailed paper with its findings.
