The 15th Nordic Experience Meeting (ERFA 2021) “Who Benefits from ECT? Contemporary Use and Practice of ECT”, organized by Nordic Association for Convulsive Therapy (NACT), will take place on 13-15 October 2021 in Snekkersten, Denmark.
NACT has organized ECT-related conferences since 2001 and annually since 2016. All previous conferences have focused on different aspects of ECT-related research and up-to-date clinical experience. This time the conference will emphasize clinical indications of ECT, perhaps the most important topic to all clinicians. Much attention is devoted to new, exciting and not-so-common indications of ECT. In addition, we cannot bypass the pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 and will discuss in detail the situation of ECT during COVID-19 era. Several key specialists from all over the world will present their research and share their clinical experience. Among those Charles Kellner and Georgios Petrides from USA, Chittaranjan Andrade from India, Pascal Sienaert and Harm-Pieter Spaans from Belgium, Poul Videbech and Martin B Jörgensen from Denmark, Anne-Liis von Knorring and Pouya Movahed from Sweden.
In addition to scientific lectures, NACT will carry on the tradition of integrating different specialists together by reserving time for discussions before, after and between lectures as well as holding scientific dinner and other activities.
The scientific part and related activities take place in Hotel Comwell Borupgaard. It is located in central North Zealand close to beach, forest and Helsingør, with a beautiful view over scenic surroundings. Snekkersten is easily accessible by public transport, the direct train from Copenhagen Airport (CPH) departs in every 20 minutes and the nice comfortable journey with plenty of scenic views on his way lasts for 40 minutes.
We feel confident that the ERFA 2021 will serve as a place of learning where we can all share the latest experiences, approaches, and research, continuing with all the best traditions of the practice of ECT and representing for all participants a treasured personal and professional experience.
