A previous survey carried out in our unit revealed deficiencies in electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) documentation. With the aim of correcting these deficiencies, the standard procedure for completing the audit cycle was followed and the survey was repeated. The results question the assumption that simply completing the audit cycle ‘automatically’ leads to an improvement in practice. Possible reasons why Improvement did not come about in this study are discussed.
