Comment permettre aux personnes souffrant de troubles des conduites alimentaires un accès plus précoce aux soins ?

Abstract : Introduction: an earlier detection of eating disorders (ED) would improve their outcome and decrease the morbidity and mortality, prevent the risk of evolution towards chronicity and physical, mental and social complications. The aim of this present work is to study the actual data about ED identification in the different involved populations. Method: a systematic review following PRISMA standards was done. Electronic databases including PUBMED and PSYCINFO were searched for articles about ED’s early detection, published between 1980 and 2018. Results: thirty one articles were included. There were mostly about anorexia nervosa and then bulimia nervosa. The articles relate to medical population (general practitioners - GP, psychiatrists, gynecologists, gastroenterologists, dentists), school staff, professionals involved in sports and general population. Knowledge about the signs and symptoms of EDs, which are useful for their identification, is disparate and can be improved. The healthcare network is mostly unknown. Discussion: results suggest that medical, paramedical, scholar staff and professionals of sport’s formation should be improved. Moreover, the telephonic and web resources and the telephone directory should be better circulated. Lastly, access to healthcare must be achievable in a shorter time period: this can be fostered by the structuration of healthcare sector on a national and regional level.
