ACUTE 2020 Virtual Conference

ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders at Denver Health Announces 2020 Virtual Conference

Sessions offer 4 Continuing Education Credits (CEs), answers the question: “What is inpatient medical stabilization for severe eating disorders?”

As the world’s only Center of Excellence for the medical treatment of severe eating disorders, ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders at Denver Health is committed to providing professional training and education on the life-threatening medical issues that accompany malnutrition and purging. This year, ACUTE is delivering a 4 CE virtual training, with livestream and on-demand viewing options, to ensure the health and safety of participating clinicians. Learn more about the event.

This year’s conference theme thoughtfully addresses the difference between the specialized care delivered at ACUTE—inpatient medical stabilization—versus inpatient behavioral treatment for severe eating disorders. With an improved understanding of this difference, providers can better serve their patients and families by swiftly identifying life-threatening medical emergencies and making swift and effective referrals that support eating disorder survival and recovery.

Across four sessions, ACUTE’s experts will reinforce why evidence-based medical care with multidisciplinary support (dietary, psychiatry/psychology, physical and occupational therapy) is essential for a small subset of critical patients. Content will also address transitions of care, with an emphasis on how collaboration with residential eating disorder treatment centers is essential to ongoing recovery.

“COVID-19 has largely disrupted live training events at which providers treating patients with severe eating disorders earn required CEs for licensure,” explains Adam Leggett, MA, Director of Marketing at ACUTE. “Our virtual conference, with flexible livestream and post-event on-demand viewing capabilities, seeks to deliver this essential training on a topic that medical and behavioral treatment providers alike can implement immediately in their practices.”
