Masterclass: Assessment, Diagnosis, Treatment & Management of Eating Disorders

This event has now past, but there may well be news on the event including presentations and quotes from the day at our News pages here, a full list of our forthcoming events is available here.

It is estimated that more than 1.25million people in the UK are affected by an eating disorder.

The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence estimates around 11% of those affected by an eating disorder are male.  There was an 8% rise in the number of inpatient hospital admissions in the 12 months before October 2013, and a 34% increase in admissions since 2005/06 equating to approximately a 7% rise each year. 

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.
