Theme
Harnessing placebo mechanisms to enhance clinical outcomes
Description
A unique, clinically-focused international symposium with experts from Germany, USA, Portugal, and Australia exploring the ethical harnessing of the “placebo component” of routine care (even if “a placebo” is not given). An interactive, interdisciplinary event exploring the application of mind-brain and behavioural sciences to the bedside. Includes a working dinner with keynote lecture from Prof Daniel Moerman and participation in a (blinded) tasting of fine wine from the Barossa.
