Target Audience

This course is designed for pharmacists, nurse practitioners or other healthcare professionals involved in the comprehensive medication management of psychiatric and/or neurological patients.

Session Summary

Weight has been a significant focus in the medical and lay media, both in perception of body image and impact on the overall health and well-being of patients. Eating disorders encompass a number of disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating that result from an individual's actions to control or adjust their body weight or shape. Since treatment of these conditions often relies less on pharmacologic management than on other treatment modalities, pharmacists may not be up-to-date on the appropriate management of patients with eating disorders. This presentation will cover acute and long-term management of eating disorders, focusing on pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatment options.
