“Addressing Medical & Psychological Complications of Eating Disorders”

with Dr. Margherita Mascolo & Dr. Gillian Lashen of ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders

Description: Complications of eating disorders are often a “fear factor” for allied professionals who are often on the front lines as a patient relapses or insists on remaining in the outpatient level of care despite a clear need for more intensive treatment. Allied professionals may be frustrated by emergency departments, hospitals and physicians who don’t seem to know how to care for these patients…and they are correct!

This workshop will aim to highlight on a very basic level, the important medical complications of severe restricting and purging. Everyone who comes into contact with patients who have eating disorders should have a great foundation in medical complications that arise, because these are extremely useful “objective” signs of illness which can be employed to break through patients’ denial and motivate recovery. Using cases and group interaction, with a focus on practical treatment plans, allied professionals will emerge newly energized to interpret results for patients and their families, and to help others in the community advocate for appropriate care.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Utilize new-found knowledge of medical complications of severe restriction (including: the risk of refeeding syndrome, vital sign abnormalities, signs (besides falling weight) that a patient is becoming more unstable such as abnormalities of blood cell counts and liver dysfunction, osteoporosis, and more) to translate these findings usefully to the client and motivate recovery.
  2. Utilize new-found knowledge of medical complications of severe purging (including: electrolyte abnormalities, how to prevent severe swelling during purging cessation, “detoxification” from purging, and more) to translate these findings usefully to the client and motivate recovery
  3. Confidently partner with the care team (in the outpatient or residential setting) to provide a consistent message to the client, and contribute to new care practice guidelines in your clinical setting

“Eating Disorders in the ER: Treating the Physical and Emotional Crises”

with Dr. Margherita Mascolo & Dr. Gillian Lashen of ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders

Description: Patients with anorexia and bulimia nervosa present to the Emergency Department with a multitude of vague complaints. It is crucial for Emergency Department physicians to recognize that such complaints stem from an underlying eating disorder to understand the pathophysiology behind such complaints. This in turn will lead to appropriate management of patient symptoms, which can often be complex for the provider and stressful for the patient. This session will give providers the tools they need to advocate for appropriate care and keep their patients out of the cycle of ineffective, repeated Emergency visits.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Significantly increase familiarity with the most common emergency department presentations of eating disorder patients, review the pathophysiologic changes that lead to such presentations, and discuss the appropriate management of each patient.
  2. Improve communication between mental health specialists and emergency room physicians when transferring care of a patient to the ED.
  3. Identify when to refer patients to a higher level of care based on clinical risk
