Screenings with missing answers cannot be scored. A positive score on the SWED suggests the need for further evaluation by a qualified health (M.D., R.N.) and/or mental health (Ph.D., Psy.D., LCSW) professional. The Stanford-Washington University Eating Disorder Screen (SWED) is developed by Drs. C. Barr Taylor, Katherine Balantekin, Ellen Fitzsimmons-Craft, Andrea Kass, Mickey Trockel, and Denise Wilfley and was made possible by grant funding from the National Institute of Mental Health (R01 MH081125 and R01 MH100455).
