UPDATE: This talk has been cancelled
The replacement June talk will now be given by Dr Suzanna Lewis who will be talking about bacteria
In this talk Dr Bradbury will present research which explores how contextual factorsÂ such as Â the patient-practitioner relationship, practitionersâ€™ expectations of how well patients will respond to treatment and the setting within which treatmentÂ is provided (e.g. NHS/private practice) might impact on treatment outcomes, such as back pain and disability.
Dr Bradbury is a Health Psychologist working at the University of Southampton. Her PhD and post-doctoral research has explored how contextual aspects of a treatment (sometimes called placebo effects) might influence how well treatment works.
