dc.description.abstractObjective: Specific guidelines, ongoing controversies in technique and audit reviews have made clinicians wary about continuing in electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). This paper attempts to reassure practitioners by incorporating such changes into a simple approach to ECT based on outcomes equivalence. Method: A selected compilation of the recent literature was used to describe a model for starting and/or continuing an effective ECT service. Results: It was suggested that a useful way of approaching ECT service delivery is to focus on what is actually important, getting patients better, and to do so within the context and capability of each hospital. Conclusions: ECT is a changing field. Remaining true to the core principles of clinical practice, patient selection and technique, provides a basis for beginning, continuing and further developing an effective ECT service.en
