Presentation Description:

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness.  The mortality rate is related to medical complications from the disorder and a significant percentage is due to suicide.  Suicidal behavior has emerged as an issue of critical concern in the treatment of eating disorders over the past decade.    This presentation will discuss the trends in suicide rates in this country and the also discuss the current research with eating disorder patients and suicide.  This presentation will also focus on assessment of suicide when working with individuals with eating disorders.  Participants will learn how to assess a specific patient according to the patient’s own particular baseline for suicidal ideation as well as assessing the patient in comparison to other patients in their current practice. These two types of assessment help the clinician make a more effective decision on immediate treatment intervention when meeting with a patient presenting with suicidal ideation.   All clinicians who are treating patients with eating disorder patients must be well versed in the serious risk of suicidal behavior and of suicide in this population and this presentation will assist clinicians if feeling more competent in assessment and documentation.
