Eating Disorders & Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction

Nick Trott, Ursula Philpot

Wednesday 28 February 2024 20:00–21:00 GMT





There is increasing evidence to indicate a ‘bi-directional relationship’ between the presentation of eating disorders and disorders of the gut-brain interaction, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). This webinar will explore the current theories of how these conditions intersect, assessment techniques, specific considerations for the application of dietary therapies, and current research gaps that merit further clarification.

In this webinar, Gastroenterology Dietitian, Nick Trott, and Eating Disorders Specialist Dietitian, Ursula Philpot will share the latest research on the link between eating disorders and disorders of the gut-brain interaction, including the current strategies for assessment and dietary treatment of GI symptoms for patients or clients that are at-risk or recovering from an eating disorder.

We’ll cover:

  • Epidemiology of eating disorders and disorders of the gut-brain interaction
  • How and why these conditions overlap and intersect
  • Current strategies for assessment and dietary treatment and the limitations
  • How to apply these techniques to clinical practice

This webinar is approved for CPD by the AfN

This webinar will provide a good introduction into an emerging area of research, and whilst some of this research is still in its infancy it is beneficial to be aware of research that may in the future result in practice amendments. It is positive to see the overview states that limitations will be presented, and it should be made clear when the consensus of evidence is strong enough to be applied to practice and where it is an area to keep a watching brief on. I am content that Schar have not influenced the content of the webinar and the speakers are independent of the funder.
