I am writing a systematic review about antidepressants. For this I need a “forest plot”. Found a nice and comprehensive article in the BMJ.
In short this what a “forest plot” is:
Forest plots show the information from the individual studies that went into the meta-analysis at a glance
They show the amount of variation between the studies and an estimate of the overall result.
And here is link with a spreadsheet to make a forest plot in excel:
In his commentary in the Journal of ECT Prof. Max Fink pleads for a ECT Accreditation Service (ECTAS) as in the United Kingdom. In the eighties and nineties of the previous century national surveys of actual practice of ECT in the U.K. revealed deficiencies in the practice of ECT. One third of the clinics did not meet the guideline standard, 41% still used outdated equipment. First in Scotland psychiatrists undertook a 3 year cycle of audits to systematically answer questions about patient demographics and outcome. Each ECT clinic was visited twice. In 2003 this initiative was followed in the U.K. Each ECT site was evaluated. Each site evaluation begins with team members completing a 284-item questionnaire assessing facilities, staff and training, consent, anesthesia, treatment and recovery procedures, and precautions and adherence to protocols. A visit by an assessment team (a clinician, a nurse , and an anaesthetist) to observe actual practice follows. Resurveys of evaluated sites are scheduled in a 3 year cycle. An update of ECTAS standards was put on the website in December 2006. An improvement of the quality of ECT in the UK developed. Is this also possible in the US he asks himself, or in The Netherlands I ask myself?
When reading the book: “Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and powerfull web tools for classrooms from Will Richardson I came across this link: The Shifted Librarian. In her post on thursday, April 19, 2007 she had a wonderfull suggestion. Use pbwiki as a presentation wiki, put your presentations on this wiki or anything else. In this way you can ad projects to your blog. I’ll do that in the recent future as well as place a review of the aforementioned book when I’ve finished reading it.

A recently published article by our group in the Journal of ECT. This article describes the long term follow-up of patients who participated in a 6 month continuation trial after ECT.
