Thu, 7 Mar 2024

Virtual, Online

Follow the conference on X #EatingDisorders2024

This conference focuses on Eating Disorders: improving access, treatment and recovery outcomes, and meeting the national standards for children, young people and adults. There is focus on early intervention and a new 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

"To tackle the serious harms, up to and including death, associated with eating disorders it is crucial that more is done to identify them at the earliest stage possible so that the appropriate care and treatment can be provided."
