Lecture Overview

Nurses in the inpatient setting providing nursing care to a person with an eating disorder can often mean constant observation and meal support, which can be a distressing experience for both the patient and the nurse. This session with Johann Dalton will offer you an in-depth understanding of the causes, consequences, and management of eating disorders to empower healthcare professionals to gain a more holistic understanding of what the person with an eating disorder may be going through.

What a great resource to have. Speaker gave a great deliverance on the topic. Explaining little tricks patients can do while being treated and ways to go around the topic without sounding negative . I found this very relevant to any nursing.
