This comprehensive and evidence-based course includes a concise pocket-sized reference that healthcare professionals can tailor to their practice.

This course is based on The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Pocket Guide to Eating Disorders, 2nd edition. This evidence-based guide is written by a dietitian that specializes in eating disorders for dietitians that work with patients with disordered eating. It is a valuable reference and source of support for clinicians that work with this varied and complex population. Professionals with an interest in disordered eating and those who interact with patients/clients with disordered eating in the work setting will also find this course beneficial.

Organized based on the Nutrition Care Process, this guide provides assessment and intervention tools, sample PES statements, and guidance for monitoring and evaluation of patients with eating disorders. Guidance on the RDN’s scope of practice is also discussed. Pharmacotherapy and nutrition support information, nutrition education topics, and advice on coordination of care are addressed. The book covers care for both inpatient and outpatient settings.

 This course uses a case-study based format to assess the reader’s knowledge and understanding of the content and their ability to apply it to clinical practice.
