abstractEating disorders (EDs) are rare, but very serious psychiatric disorders, with a low recovery rate (1,2). This warrants studies on treatment quality to improve the course and consequences of EDs and enhance recovery rates. Despite the increasing recognition of the value of patient input, few studies address how ED patients evaluate the illness, its consequences and treatment, and how their views are related to scientific evidence and expert opinions.text
