In part of our ongoing efforts to provide high-quality education for professionals
interested in training with Dr. Gaudiani, we will be offering a four-part
webinar series starting in February 2017.
Medical Complications Associated with Eating Disorders
in the Outpatient Setting
This webinar series invites community providers from all disciplines to learn in detail about the medical complications that affect patients with eating disorders across the recovery spectrum.
Participants can expect to learn how to:
· Recognize physical manifestations, ranging from subtle to severe
· Use practical techniques for diagnosis and communication
· Protect your patient and your practice
· Identify symptoms and findings that need immediate attention
Episode 1: Malnutrition
February 24, 2017 | 12 p.m. MST
In this hourlong webinar, Dr. Gaudiani will review in detail the response of the body to malnutrition…regardless of body weight. Going beyond simple recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of these issues, she will focus on how to communicate them with the patient, in order to help foster recognition of the effects the eating disorder has on the body, and promote recovery. Topics include the direct sequelae of malnutrition, such as vital sign abnormalities, hypoglycemia, low blood cell counts, liver dysfunction, exercise, skin effects, autophonia, and others. Additionally, some frequently associated disorders will be discussed, including Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) and dysautonomia.
Episode 2: Purging & Electrolytes
May 12, 2017 | 12 p.m. MST
In this hourlong webinar, Dr. Gaudiani will review the medical complications of purging, from direct physical responses, to electrolyte abnormalities and how to interpret and fix them, to the risks of stopping purging such as Pseudo-Bartter Syndrome and rebound edema. Laxative abuse, diuretic abuse, and purging by vomiting will all be covered. Rare and dangerous sequelae of purging will also be reviewed.
Episode 3: GI issues in Eating Disorders
August 15, 2017 | 12 p.m. MST
In this hourlong webinar, Dr. Gaudiani will extensively review the myriad gastroenterological complications that those with eating disorders can experience, from the mundane to the truly unusual. Topics will include: gastroparesis, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, involuntary vomiting syndromes, intestinal microflora, dysphagia, refeeding diarrhea, superior mesenteric artery syndrome, reflux, rumination, pelvic floor dysfunction, and more.
Episode 4: Endocrine and Fertility
December 8, 2017 | 12 p.m. MST
In this hourlong webinar, Dr. Gaudiani will discuss endocrine implications of eating disorders, including bone density loss, low estrogen, low testosterone, fertility, pregnancy, thyroid function, Type I Diabetes concurrent with ED, and more. As always, the most current medical literature will be reviewed and incorporated into this case-based format.
