Abstract

This study examined the stability of patients' attitudes toward electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Surveys were administered to 64 study participants at 2 and 4 weeks post treatment. The survey responses were highly significantly correlated and not significantly different, which suggests that attitudes toward ECT are stable during this time.
