Placebo: The Power of Nothing

Presented by: Kristy S. Deep, MD, MA, FACP
Associate Professor
Internal Medicine Residency Program Director
University of Kentucky College of Medicine

Abstract:
The idea of placebo controlled trials is relatively new in medicine, but has become the gold standard in research. But is placebo really inert? We’ll explore the mechanisms behind the placebo effect and examine how study design could potentially leverage placebo response to alter outcomes.   

After completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Discuss the placebo response in clinical trials.  
2. Evaluate the mechanism of the placebo effect. 
3. Assess how study design can impact placebo response.
