This module gives an introduction to the
assessment of adult bulimia nervosa.
First, the epidemiology of bulimia nervosa is
outlined as well as the challenges for patients
presenting to primary care.
We then go on to describe standard
diagnostic criteria for eating disorders along with other important
physical and psychological characteristics of bulimic disorders.
Comprehensive assessment, medical risks, risk assessment and
physical examination are discussed.
Finally, treatment approaches, the assessment of motivation
to change and how to increase food intake are explored.
