About this publication
The Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services was commissioned by the Norwegian Directorate of Health to undertake a literature search and find potentially relevant systematic reviews and randomized controlled trials about the effect of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) on suicide and suicide prevention. Our findings are presented in this systematic reference list.
A systematic literature search was undertaken by librarian Marita Heintz, Norwegian Directorate of Health and sent us for evaluation. The search was undertaken in relevant medical and psychological databases. The searches were completed in January 2015. Two researchers reviewed the identified references independently and evaluated relevance according to our pre-defined inclusion criteria.
The search identified 711 references, 571 after checking for duplications. The references were reviewed and 6 identified as potentially relevant for our research question:
- systematic reviews (4)
- randomized controlled trials (2)
