Our profession is committed to the principles of evidence-based practice, that is, the integration of current best evidence, clinical expertise, and patient values. We have made great strides in published evidence and structured postprofessional programs designed to accelerate clinical expertise. It is now time for our profession to take a proactive approach toward patient values. Therefore, let us embrace and enhance, rather than discount, the benefits of placebo and couple this with knowledge and shaping of patient expectations to maximize therapeutic outcomes.
