As you know, I'm a nursing student and I'm doing research on anorexia at the moment. I've know answers to the questions like where it's origins are, symptoms, treatments etc..... Now I need to know about how to manage someone on the ward with anorexia. I'm talking about like general nursing, not psychiatric nursing, because I will be a general nurse, not psychiatric trained. So as a general nurse on the ward, if you have a patient with anorexia, what are some interventions you could do to help with this patient, how could you help manage this patient on the ward. Lets assume they are already under a psychiatrist and/or doctor and are receiving treatment for their anorexia, so as a nurse (general trained), how can you help?
I also wouldn't mind hearing from those who are psychiatric trained or have personal experience in this area. Any help and suggestions will be great. Thanks so much
