dc.description.abstractComments on an article by Kerry Kershaw et al. (see record 2007-17844-004), who examined patients' views on the quality of care they received before, during and after electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). The current author notes that patients undergoing ECT not only face the stigma of the treatment but also the potential disempowerment of such a technique, particularly in those cases where it is carried out against the wishes of the patient. It is suggested that the study carried out by Kershaw et al. was potentially able to address this issue, but unfortunately the researchers did not report whether the patients were being treated voluntarily, nor their attitudes towards ECT before receiving treatment.
