Patients with eating disorders in any setting…outpatient, residential, or inpatient…do best when a multidisciplinary team cares for them. The physician, nurse, dietitian, therapist, social worker, and often physical therapist, occupational therapist, and others, working together with respectful communication and dedication to scope of practice, offer patients with eating disorders the best possible clinical care. In this talk, not only will the vital roles of a care team be presented, but also the fundamentals of the medical complications of eating disorders will be detailed.
