There are no courses currently available for
booking. Please regularly check our Course Calendar for updates.
This short course has been developed
in collaboration between the Royal College of Psychiatrists ECT
Accreditation Service (ECTAS) and the National Association of Lead
Nurses in ECT (NALNECT) in response to feedback from ECT nurses
regarding the lack of national post registration provision of
training in this specialist area of practice.This course is the
equivalent of 3 study days.
The course will provide nurses with
the knowledge, skills and expertise to carry out all duties and
responsibilities for ECT in accordance with:
- The Royal College of Psychiatrists
guidelines and the ECT Accreditation Service Standards for the
Administration of ECT
- The Royal College of Anaesthetists
and the Association of Anaesthetists guidelines
- The NICE guidelines
- The Royal College of Nursing guidance
Delgates will be expected to develop
knowledge and skills and initiate and share good practice in
relation to ECT.
