Providing up-to-date information and research on world-class treatments, this book helps health care professionals understand how to treat eating disorders and other subsequent medical complications that arise as a result of the patient's disorder. Each chapter begins with 'Study Questions' to focus the reader and put the relevant information into perspective, and concludes with 'Implications for Health Care Professionals' to summarise the key learnings of the chapter. 'Patient Information' sections are also included to give examples of how the topics covered can be presented to patients and families. This text is essential reading for all health care professionals involved in the care and management of patients with eating disorders.
