Eating Disorder Clinical Case Conference: unique considerations in the care of patients with eating disorder and co-occurring substance use disorder

Hosted by the Substance SIG

Co-chairs: Kim Dennis, MD, CEDS and David Wiss, PhD, RDN
Friday, May 13, 2022 | 12 p.m. EDT

Presenters: Colleen Kestel, RDN, and Rachel Goodwin, LCPC, CADC

Despite research showing up to 50% of patients with eating disorders misuse substances, and those with co-occurring SUD have worse outcomes and higher mortality risk, this patient population continues to be under-researched, poorly understood and underserved in both addiction and eating disorder clinical settings.

This webinar will feature two presenters practicing  a  unique care delivery model which fully integrates eating disorder and substance use disorder care for patients with  co-occurring illness. Two clinical cases will be presented with discussion and Q&A facilitated by Drs. Wiss and Lampert including diagnostic considerations, nutritional care, medical comorbidity and peer community support for this patient population.
