Case-by-case: eating disorders

Module summary
Psychiatrists Dr William Rhys Jones and Dr Muhammad Masood present four eating disorder case presentations, giving you the chance to compare your diagnosis and management with their advice.
Learning objectives

This module will update you on diagnosis and management of anorexia and bulimia, including:

  • Diagnostic criteria for anorexia and bulimia
  • Recommended assessment tools
  • Approaches to management of patients with eating disorders
  • When a patient requires urgent care

 

Within the module you will be presented with a case, followed by an open-ended question, which will ask you to write down how you would approach the case at a given point. You will then be presented with advice from the author, allowing you to compare your approach to that of a specialist in the field.

There is no post-module assessment. Instead, you will be invited to reflect on the cases and your current practice.
