What exactly is the role of an outpatient psychiatrist working with eating disorder pts? I work part time in an Intensive Outpatient Program setting and I have been asked to consider seeing these pts. I have been seeing pts with mood disorders and substance use disorders exclusively in this setting so far. The ED pts would have an individual therapist, work with dietician/nutritionist, and attend group psychotherapy. Besides treating co-morder psychiatric disorders and/or sx, ordering lab work in cases of purging and recommend ED pts to a higher level of care, is there anything else a psychiatrist in this setting would be expected to do? Any insight would be welcome since ED pts are not my area of expertise. Thanks in advance.
