abstract
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a medical procedure used for treatment-resistant depressed patients who have failed remission following at least two adequate antidepressant trials and psychotherapy. Despite clinical benefits, many eligible patients do not undergo ECT. Assessing variations in ECT use has not been fully investigated in many regions. Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (WFBMC) is a leading ECT-provider in North Carolina and is uniquely positioned to give insights into treatment disparities.
