Activity Overview

Binge eating disorder (BED) is the most frequently diagnosed eating disorder that has its own medical and psychiatric comorbidities and has high socio-economic impact due to reduced quality of life and increased health service use. This webinar will focus on how the specific features of BED can be identified at baseline and how to screen patients. It will also provide strategies for nurse practitioners to appropriately select among (or combine) behavioral, psychotherapeutic and pharmacotherapeutic modalities to optimally treat and manage their patients.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Define the components of the clinical diagnosis of binge eating disorder (BED) as an eating disorder

  • Identify the pharmacologic basis for the treatment of BED.

  • Describe the non-pharmacologic treatments available to patients with BED.

  • Explore the therapeutic treatments available to patients with BED.

This educational activity is supported by an independent medical educational grant from Shire.
