Grant Activity:
Expecting the worst: psychosocial contributors to the nocebo effect
Purpose:
This project aims to propose and test a new model of the nocebo effect, a powerful psychological phenomenon in which negative expectations are thought to cause unpleasant or harmful side effects following an inert treatment. Nocebo effects can lead to treatment non-adherence, unnecessary GP visits, reduced quality of life, and increased health costs. Understanding how nocebo effects are formed will assist in the development of strategies to minimise their occurrence with will benefit both individuals and the health system.
