This conference focuses on Eating Disorders: risk assessments and referrals, working compassionately with your patient, and complications of treatment. There is focus on referrals to specialist services and an extended session focusing on Managing Medical Emergencies in Eating Disorders following the 2022 Medical Emergencies in Eating Disorders National Guidance.

Eating disorders are treatable, people can get better with time and treatment. We shouldn’t accept anorexia has the highest mortality rate because a lot of these deaths are avoidable and treatable. We should be aiming to provide high-quality care.

Dr Agnes Ayton, The Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Lead for Adult Eating Disorders, February 2023

Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening conditions with some of the highest mortality rates of any mental health disorder. Early intervention is vital and we recognise how important it is that everyone with an eating disorder can access quick, specialist help when necessary. Improving eating disorder services is a key priority for the government and a fundamental part of our commitment to improve mental health services.
