    • Abstract:
      The changing trends and patterns of the health environment require educators to sustain innovations through the improvement of faculty and curriculum models. However, despite evidence from empirical studies, the health sector has failed to reduce the incidence of eating disorders in the United States, which requires evidence-based practice, a broad knowledge base, competence, and authority among nursing professionals and the academic community. Within this context, the present qualitative study aims using meta-analysis to understand the link between the use of nursing curricula strategies for nursing education and the promotion of recovery from eating disorders. Using 12 studies that investigated the impact of teaching nurses through educational strategies in promoting recovery from eating disorders, the present study assesses particular types of eating disorder curriculum models for nurses that are significantly associated with the promotion of recovery from eating disorders. These 12 studies were selected on the basis of research article information (year, author/s, type of publication, country in which research was conducted), program characteristics (type of education for nurses' intervention strategy, entry point in the intervention plan, training, selection criteria, experience and educational background of the nurse educator, eligibility criteria for eating disorder patient participation, existence of training manuals or procedural guidelines), participant characteristics (eating disorder history, age, gender and ethnicity of patients), outcome measures (emergent themes of the influences of education for nursing strategies on the promotion of recovery from eating disorders), and methodological characteristics (sample size, random assignment to control and treatment groups, length of follow-up for recidivism, characteristics of control/comparison group, use of an independent evaluator). Three thematic categories emerged in the analysis: (a) patients with eating disorders seek medical help in the primary care setting, (b) psychological and medical approaches as common intervention plans for patients with eating disorders, and (c) factors influencing the recidivism of eating disorders in patients. These thematic categories describe the current condition of education for nursing curriculum strategies that affect the promotion of recovery from eating disorders. The results of the study contribute to the improvement of the nursing curricula, particularly with regard to the delivery of nursing care for patients with anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.
