ECT – current practical administration

  • Andrew J. Hill-Smith (a1) and Martin S. Lee (a2)
Extract

In the current climate of interest in audit (Standing Medical Advisory Committee, 1990) and a desire at our hospital to embark on criterion based projects, we set out to undertake a simple audit project surveying the practice of ECT. The aim was to audit the treatment facilities, the treatment procedure and the supervision and training. It was hoped that the full cycle of audit – setting goals, measuring activity, and then effecting change – would be achieved (Shaw & Costain, 1989)
