Please join the Denver Metro iaedp Chapter for lunch and an engaging presentation and discussion by Dr. Jen Guadiani on:

Treating the Whole Person: Understanding and Treating Outpatient Medical Issues of Eating Disorders with a Social Justice/HAES® Lens

In this workshop, participants will gain greater familiarity with common (vital sign abnormalities, gastroparesis, constipation, bone density loss, lab abnormalities) and less common (psychogenic non-epileptic seizures, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, outpatient tube feeding, Relative Energy Deficiency in Sports) medical problems our patients experience with particular attention toward outpatient medical management. Practical, immediately useful, and advocacy-oriented, this talk will highlight diverse patients and insist upon an approach that honors body diversity and awareness of social justice issues in eating disorder treatment.

Objectives:
• Identify the symptoms of both measurable and unmeasurable medical issues that pertain to outpatients with eating disorders.
• Feel confident recognizing appropriate (and inappropriate) workup and management of these issues as a therapist or dietitian, keeping an eye on whether patient’s medical problems are being adequately addressed, or understanding how to take better care of this patient population directly as provider from a medical or non-medical background.
• Communicate findings and contextualize medical issues effectively to optimize the recovery process, whether on an ongoing basis as an outpatient provider, or in referral to a higher level of care.
• Understand how social justice issues impact the medical care of eating disorders and how to apply a Health at Every Size (HAES®) treatment philosophy to eating disorder recovery (and why this is important!)
