Ein palliativer Ansatz für schwerste Anorexia nervosa?


Westermair, Anna Lisa; Perrar, K M; Schweiger, U (2020). Ein palliativer Ansatz für schwerste Anorexia nervosa? Der Nervenarzt, 91(5):411-416.

Abstract

Even with guideline-conform treatment in specialized outpatient clinics and intensive treatment programs, some patients suffering from severe and enduring anorexia nervosa do not achieve a satisfying level of mental health and quality of life. As this patient group is associated with a high mortality, a palliative stage of anorexia nervosa is postulated. In these cases, treatment decisions should factor in not only a prolongation of life but also quality of life, especially when compulsory treatment is considered. In doubtful cases, a palliative care physician and the clinical ethics committee should be consulted.
