Eating disorders encompass physical, psychological and social pathologies that increase risk and patients sometimes require urgent medical treatment in an acute hospital setting. There are often concerns however regarding the acute care of patients with eating disorders because of rapid physical deterioration and resistance to treatment following admission to general medical inpatient services often via the A&E department. It was out of the Royal College of Psychiatrists published the adult and junior "Management of Really Sick Patients with Anorexia Nervosa" (MaRSiPAN) reports.

Presented by Dr William Rhys Jones, this work shop will provide attendees with an overview of the adult and junior MaRSiPAN reports relevant to their practice including:

  • Standards of physical risk assessment for eating disorders
  • Criteria for admission to both medical/paediatric units and specialist eating disorder units and criteria for transfer between services
  • Recommendations for the rate of medical re-feeding
  • Recommendations regarding the development of local MaRSiPAN pathways and MaRSiPAN working groups
  • Guidance for the commissioning of MaRSiPAN pathways
