This continuing professional development article aims to raise awareness of eating disorders, how they are experienced and some approaches to assessment and treatment that will help the practicing mental health nurse to provide evidence-based care. National guidelines and relevant research are presented to aid understanding of the phenomena of eating disorder. Eating disorders are considered across the age span, and a simple mode of assessment is offered. Case studies are used to highlight the use of therapeutic interventions and treatment plans in both in-patient and community care and provide a starting point for informed practice.
