As always, the 2019 ICED meeting in New York offered many outstanding and thought-provoking sessions by eating disorder experts from around the world. It is always very difficult to single out one or a few presentations, and this year was no different. Dr. Joiner’s thoughtful approach to warning signs of patients considering suicide is a good example. In the next issue, we will include a plenary session by Dr. Allan Kaplan, of the University of Toronto, which tackles the very difficult subject of compulsory treatment for patients who have life-threatening eating disorders and who do not wish to get well. The challenge to clinicians is to continue to find more effective ways to treat people with eating disorders, and to pass the knowledge on.
