About the conference

Multidisciplinary Treatment of Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are serious illnesses associated with negative health outcomes and the highest mortality among psychiatric disorders and manifest as a growing problem all around the world. Eating Disorders are mental illnesses that can have not only severe psychological implications, but also physical and social consequences.

The assessment and management of individuals with eating disorders can be challenging for professionals, due to the complex nature of such disorders. This is why diagnosis and treatment often involve professional support across multiple disciplines. In addition, the myths and misconceptions which surround the disorder often lead to patient self-stigmatisation and resistance to treatment.

This one-day event aims to bring participants up to date with cutting-edge research, clinical interventions and innovative scientific investigations in the treatment of Eating Disorders. Our conference will focus on multidisciplinary approaches along the patient's journey from early identification and diagnosis, to the treatment of eating disorders.

The process of patient recovery involves a collaborative approach between disciplines such dietary and internal medicine, alongside psychiatry and therapy. And our conference is also aiming to promote collaboration and sharing of knowledge across disciplines. During the two days, the exchange of knowledge and learning will take various formats from speaker keynote presentations and service user contributions, to oral poster presentations, poster exhibitions and interactive workshops.

Plenary sessions will be planned throughout the day with question and answer sessions and panel discussions, in between. This meeting of minds will provide a valuable opportunity to network, share knowledge and ideas, and consider collaborative projects.

There will be an additional opportunity for participants to appreciate a special trading exhibition and find answers or inspiration in the range of relevant products and services.
