Since it’s inception over 80 years ago, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) has been the gold standard of treatment for catatonia, psychotic depression, and treatment resistant depression, as well as a non-pharmacologic option for other psychiatric illnesses and syndromes. This presentation will be an evidence-based review of all aspects of ECT, including the history, indications, efficacy, side effects, procedural details and advances, maintenance treatment, myths surrounding treatment, and possible mechanisms of actions. By the end of this webinar, you should understand when referral for ECT is appropriate and be up to date on the recent advances in this life-saving treatment.
