Levels of Care for Disordered Eating
THE DIETITIAN ROLE IN LEVELS OF CARE FOR DISORDERED EATING
Disordered eating (DE) treatment includes nutrition counseling and therapy, psychosocial counseling and therapy, and medical monitoring and treatments. Nutrition counseling for DE is complex and involves treatment of several facets. There are five levels of care (LOC) for DE as defined by the American Psychiatric Association and the Residential Eating Disorders Consortium. The criteria for determining appropriate LOC relates to different aspects of care provided, and some specific criteria is directly related to nutritional status. This webinar will provide details about assessment of appropriate LOC, main dietitian responsibilities in each LOC, and how to properly transition between different LOC. Case studies will be discussed to apply information learned, with a basic case example and a more complex case. Whether you are a seasoned DE dietitian or just learning about the field, attending this webinar should enhance your nutrition practice.

  • Assess appropriate LOC for DE clients/patients.


  • Define the basics of the dietitian’s responsibilities in each LOC.
