Eating Disorders Masterclass

Friday 14 Feb 2020

De Vere West One Conference Centre, London

Beat (Beat Eating Disorders National Charity) believe approximately 1.25 million people in the UK have an eating disorder. Around 25% of those affected by an eating disorder are male.

This one day masterclass will provide you with an overall understanding of the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and overall management of the eating disorders you are likely to see in practice.

Designed specifically to provide you with an overview of the range of eating disorders commonly seen, this one day masterclass will help you explore the key questions:

  • How do I know if someone has an eating disorder?
  • What are the features of the different types of eating disorders?
  • Why does someone get an eating disorder and why is it so hard to treat?
  • What are the signs, symptoms, and risks of eating disorders?
  • How do I diagnose and treat a patient with an eating disorder?
  • What are the medical risks associated with eating disorders?
  • How do I treat the extremely physically unwell patient in hospital?
  • How do I treat these patients in a primary care setting if the patient is not engaging with specialist services?
  • What are the current national guidelines for eating disorders?
  • How do I assess capacity in eating disorder patients? What about treatment under the Mental Health Act, or Mental Capacity Act?
  • What help and resources are available for someone with an eating disorder?

You will leave the day with more confidence and skills in managing this complex and risky group of patients, including how to help their families.

This masterclass will enable you to:

  • Gain a better understanding and knowledge base of eating disorders
  • Increase confidence in assessment, treatment and overall multidisciplinary management of eating disorders
  • Achieve a solid knowledge base around the physical risks of eating disorders, and how these are best managed.
  • Understand the national guidelines and treatment protocols for treatment of severe eating disorders
  • Understand the issues around capacity, and use of the mental health act and mental capacity act, when treating patients with eating disorders
  • Improve knowledge of resources and help available to people with eating disorders
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
