This conference focuses on the NICE guideline for Eating Disorders and how you can ensure you are achieving compliance. Attending this event will give you the opportunity to hear practical advice and tips on implementing changes to your service to ensure compliance. The NICE guideline stresses the need for immediate referral, condemns use of physical measurements as the only indicator of severity, and outlines that individuals should not be travelling long distances for treatment. It states that inpatient care plans should be developed with the patient and their carers, and thought should be given to the aim of their admission and transition back to the community.

“Eating disorders commonly have their origins in adolescence, but are often not identified or picked up by services until adulthood. Early intervention is strongly advocated (Treasure and 26 Russell, 2011). However, the necessary early identification and prevention or treatment of eating disorders is a difficult task, due to the low base rate of such cases and limitations in tools suggested for early identification and prevention. Even very underweight patients routinely go unidentified or their needs are not responded to by clinicians and non-underweight patients are likely to be missed by clinicians and families alike. Such patients are unlikely to self-report in the early years of the disorder. Furthermore, most eating disorders have low rates of spontaneous remission. Therefore, this guideline focuses substantially on the evidence as to how clinicians can effectively treat and manage eating disorders that might have been present for many years. Since the 2004 NICE guideline, two strands of evidence have emerged that necessitate a new eating disorders guideline in 2017.” Eating disorders: recognition and treatment NICE guideline: short version Draft for consultation, December 2016

Your speakers on the day will be providing you with insight on a range of subject areas which have been highlighted as key points within the NICE Guidance, such as: pathways for eating disorders in children and young people, service user experience, comorbidities,  early intervention, carer involvement, commissioning

By attending this one day conference you will hear from expert speakers on how you can implement the new NICE Guidance on Eating Disorders: Recognition and Treatment published in May 2017.
