Eating Disorders is a new iOS app by Josh Steinberg and team. It’s freeware for your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
Eating Disorders provides guidance at the point of care for clinicians evaluating and treating people for the eating disorders named in DSM-IV. The app presents evidence based tools for screening (SCOFF questionanaire), comprehensive evaluation, laboratory workup, and guidance on treatment setting.
The app addresses such common questions as
•how can I screen for Anorexia & Bulimia Nervosa? how good is the screening tool?
•what are the elements of comprehensive diagnostic evaluation?
•what labs and workup should I get for a patient 25% below ideal body weight?
•what should I consider when negotiating inpatient vs. outpatient treatment setting?
Written by the multidisciplinary team at the Southern Tier Eating Disorders Network, this app is written and intended for practicing clinicians like family physicians, internists, pediatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, school nurses, and more; for resident physician trainees; and for medical students.
