Abstract
Aims and Method

The Rainbow programme was introduced in January 2004 as a structured in-patient treatment for anorexia. There were two strands to the programme evaluation: a notes review of a cohort of in-patients and a series of questionnaires to users, carers and staff.

Results

There was an improvement in adherence to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidelines and 94% of staff responders found the Rainbow programme framework useful.

Clinical Implications

The Rainbow programme improved the level of care provided. There is scope for improvement in the distribution of the programme manual.
