Other Abstract

To promote the translation of basic findings into clinical practice and to optimize placebo effect in clinical applications, psychological mechanisms and clinical applications of placebo effects were comprehensively reviewed in the present study. We firstly summarized the involvement of expectancy, classical conditioning, social learning, and individual factors in the generation of placebo effects. The interactions among expectancy, conditioning, motivation(e.g., desire for relief), cognition(e.g., somatic focus), and individual factors(e.g., emotional state and personality trait) were highlighted. Then, we discussed evidence demonstrating placebo induced analgesic effects for relieving various types of pain in the clinical practice. Furthermore, we discussed possible factors with potential to influence placebo effects in the clinical practice from several perspectives: patients, healthcare workers, and medical environment. And we proposed several strategies to optimize placebo effects in the clinical practice from different perspectives. From patients’perspective, they should keep positive and optimistic attitudes to the medical treatment, with their expectancy for rehabilitation regulated in a median and reasonable level and their negative emotions well controlled. From healthcare workers’perspective, they should be patient-cen⁃tered, establish a harmonious doctor-patient relationship, and deliver positive expectancy to patients through proper instructions and behaviors. From the medical environment perspective, the multi-dimensional information (e.g., vision, touch, and taste) of therapy-related medicine or instruments should be presented to patients, with highlight on their clinical efficacy and value. In the end, we discussed several issues that could hamper the translation of basic research findings relevant to placebo effects into their clinical applications, and the possible solutions for future studies.
