Topical Concurrent Session 3C: Influencing wisely: Understanding factors shaping patient expectations of treatment outcomes
Chair: Dr Claire Ashton-James, Pain Management Research Institute, NSW

Patients’ treatment expectations have a profound impact on their responses to treatment advice, motivation to adhere to treatment recommendations, and treatment outcomes. The speakers in this topical workshop draw on research from the cognitive, behavioural, social, and decision sciences to shed light on factors shaping of patient expectations. Dr Claire Ashton-James will present new research clinician attributes that promote patient trust and positive treatment expectancies in multidisciplinary pain teams. Professor Paul Glare will present cutting edge research into how clinicians can potentially reduce patients’ aversion to non-pharmacological treatments for chronic pain by using the principles of regulatory fit theory. Dr Kate Faasse will talk about when negative expectations result in treatment side effects, and the impact of media coverage, medication formulation switches, and lack of choice on patients’ treatment outcomes. Together, these three presentations will attempt to shift the audiences’ focus from how we are treating pain, to how we are delivering our treatments for pain.
