NICE eating disorders guideline
Key points for primary care from NICE’s guideline on the management of eating disorders.
Eating disorders are a range of conditions that can have long-term physical and psychological consequences, such as osteoporosis and anxiety. Early assessment and intervention can prevent the development of severe complications that could be challenging and costly to treat, while improving the physical and mental wellbeing of patients.
This updated Guidelines for Nurses summary covers the identification, assessment, and treatment of eating disorders in people of all ages, including the management of both physical and mental health problems.
