Canadian Electroconvulsive Therapy Survey

Welcome to the Canadian Electroconvulsive Therapy Survey/Standards (CANECTS)

Our Mandates

CANECTS consists of a group of investigators from Psychiatry, Anesthesiology, Psychology and Nursing who have convened to carry out a descriptive nationwide survey of ECT practices in Canada. We partnered with the Canadian Psychiatry Association, completed the survey between 2007 and 2008, and have since presented the findings at national and international conferences as well as in several journal articles (see News & Publications). Guided by the survey findings, in 2014 we embarked on the development of ECT standards.
