PLACEBO AND SUGGESTION - FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PATIENTS
Languages of publication
The paper summarizes the common aspects and the differences of the placebo/nocebo and suggestion. To understand better the placebo effect, it would be important to take into consideration that the suggestibility of patients is hightened compared to the rational, waking, healthy person. This way patients interpret the communicative messages differently. So in the everyday practice - to increase the benefit of placebo effect and decrease the nocebo effect - a much greater role of carefully applied suggestive communication is recommended.
