31st Annual Meeting

Traditionally an in-person conference, this year’s event will be held virtually for the second time. It is set to include plenary presentations by leading experts in the fields of ECT, TMS, and other novel brain stimulation therapies, as well as a poster session for abstract submissions.

A virtual course on electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), this event will consist of two half days of didactic and practicum experiences. Topics covered include patient selection and preparation, ECT and anesthesia technique, management of complications, post-ECT management, and medicolegal issues. It will conclude with an exam (optional) testing participants’ theoretical and practical knowledge learned in the course.

Intended Audience

This year's conference is intended for practitioners, mental health professionals, and researchers of ECT and related stimulation techniques. A poster session will allow for the most recent research in ECT and other brain stimulation modalities to be presented. The information presented in this CME offering reflects the opinion of the presenters. As with all science, there may be multiple explanations for the data and multiple reasonable conclusions.

Objectives

At the conclusion of the conference, participants should be able to:

  • describe the implications of the laws that restrict access to electroconvulsive therapy for patients who lack decision-making capacity and the ethical implications of such laws.
  • facilitate thoughtful conversation and collective action toward improving equity in ECT care.
  • describe how changes in heart rate variability can be helpful in finding the accurate target for TMS.
  • describe how different depression symptoms may require different brain stimulation targets.
