Summary:

Societal pressure to be fashion-model thin and our increasing preoccupation with obesity have helped cause as many as 8 million Americans to develop clinical eating disorders. Many of them are adolescent females, for whom nutritional deprivation during the growth years can have severe and lasting consequences. Surprisingly, older people and athletes are also at risk. This comprehensive course focuses on diagnosis and treatment, with emphasis on assessment techniques, counseling strategies and nutritional interventions.

Objectives:

The goal of this course is to provide clinicians information on the seriousness of eating disorders to increase their ability to recognize the symptoms to initiate interventions.
 
After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  •  Compare prevalence rates and risk factors of the three main types of eating disorders; anorexia nervosa (AN), bulimia nervosa (BN), and binge eating disorder (BED).
  • Identify the DSM -5 diagnostic criteria of AN, BN, BED, and other specified feeding or eating disorder (OSFED).
  • Define orthorexia nervosa.
  • Describe the role of each interdisciplinary team member in the treatment / management of eating disorders.
  • List criteria for recommending inpatient treatment and enteral and/or parenteral nutrition.
  • List the four steps of the Nutrition Care Process (NCP) and the purpose of each step.
  • List five pieces of information collected during a nutrition assessment.
  • Calculate a person’s ideal body weight (IBW), body mass index (BMI), and daily calorie needs using the appropriate equations.
  • Identify the three components of a nutrition diagnosis statement.
  • Provide an example of a nutrition intervention for each of the following categories: food and/or nutrient delivery, nutrition education, nutrition counseling, and coordination of nutrition care.
  • Explain the potential complications of refeeding syndrome and how it can be prevented.
  • Identify the unique needs of special populations during the treatment process.
  • Compare the various types of psychotherapies and alternative therapies used to treat eating disorders and the psychotropic medications used to treat eating disorders.
