Ellern Mede is contributing to national best practice in dietetics for Anorexia Nervosa. Complete Nutrition professional magazine has published a research paper by Ellern Mede Dietitian Oliver Street and Rhodes Wood’s Sarah Fuller in its May 2016 issue which researched current safe practice in feeding children and adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa.
The article examines practices around physical intervention in feeding for young people who are being treated as inpatients for weight restoration and stabilisation following admission under the mental health act. There are no national guidelines for prescribing of fluids and calories so this article, representing a survey of national CAMHS practice, helps to identify current practice.
