Case-by-case: eating disorders
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.
