Program Description

This CE monograph presents practical strategies to meet the needs of nurse practitioners (NPs) and other clinicians who manage the health of women throughout the reproductive years. It will better enable clinicians to identify and manage patients with binge eating disorder (BED), now included as a specific diagnosis in the 5th edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Importantly, BED is more likely to affect women than men and is underdiagnosed and undertreated.

This education is important because NPs and other advanced practice clinicians in women’s health are often called upon to provide both reproductive and primary care for women and may serve as the patient’s only regular contact with the healthcare system. The medical literature reports that ob/gyn practices represent an important opportunity for the prevention and diagnosis of eating disorders. Thus, NPs in women’s health are well positioned to identify, screen, diagnose, and initiate and/or refer for treatment.

Intended Audience

Nurse practitioners and other clinicians who manage women’s health

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, clinicians should be better able to:

  • Discuss current diagnostic criteria for binge eating
  • Apply effective patient-clinician communication strategies regarding binge eating and its effects, including those related to fertility and future pregnancy
  • Evaluate pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic approaches to treatment
  • Monitor patient progress, adjust treatment plans, and refer as appropriate
