Researchers at The Renfrew Center Foundation continually search for new insights into the etiology of eating disorders, as well as the tools for measuring the impact of treatment outcomes.
The Renfrew Center’s Research Department:
- Oversees the collection of empirical research data from our eleven clinical sites.
- Uses collected data to shape and improve clinical programming by providing clinicians, patients and their families with clear markers of treatment progress.
- Utilizes data to help set specific treatment goals based on each patient’s individual and unique needs and vulnerabilities.
- Provides patients and families with the opportunity to contribute to the expansion of knowledge in the field through their participation in various voluntary research activities.
Renfrew’s research team is also making significant contributions to the academic study of eating disorders by competing for federally funded grant opportunities, publishing studies in peer-reviewed journals and presenting research findings at professional conferences.
