A randomized controlled trial of video psychoeducation for electroconvulsive therapy in the United States.
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a highly effective psychiatric treatment that remains largely underutilized. Patient psychoeducation about ECT may improve uptake of this treatment. This randomized controlled trial compared two forms of psychoeducation about ECT: video psychoeducation and an informational brochure. The investigators found that both the video psychoeducation and brochure groups showed significantly more positive perceptions and knowledge about ECT following the intervention, with no significant differences between groups.
