Beyond the Placebo: Biomedical, Clinical and Philosophical Aspects of the Placebo Effect

Symposium organisé par l'Institut d'Ethique biomédicale de l'Université de Zurich

Many issues related to placebos and placebo effects puzzle physicians, patients, and the scientific community. Are placebo effects clinically relevant? How can they be understood in neurophysiological and neurophilosophical perspectives? What is their place in modern medicine? The aim of the symposium is to bring together a multidisciplinary group of researchers to set the current knowledge in a broader context and to discuss the implications for the goal of good health care.
