Lotus Clinical Research has developed a proprietary placebo response video education series designed to modulate patient expectations and dampen placebo response. This video series equips patients with important information about an analgesic trial’s purpose, as well as what to expect throughout the duration of a study.

Through this series, patients receive placebo response education across the following areas:

  • Understanding the terms placebo control and double-blind
  • What is the placebo effect?
  • The difference between a treatment relationship and a research relationship
  • How to rate your pain consistently using pain scales
  • Measuring pain on a Visual Analog Scale (VAS)
  • Numerical Pain Rating Scale (NPRS)
  • Collecting pain relief assessments
  • Measuring pain relief using the two-stopwatch technique
  • What is rescue medication
