Top 5 Fridays! 5 Steps to Prove Your Therapy is Effective, Even When It Isn't

5 Steps to Prove Your Therapy is Effective, Even When It Isn't -

To add a little humor to the mix, this week goes over the steps needed to prove your therapy is effective, even when it’s not.

When you decide you want to create your own treatment method and want to maximize profits, these steps will guide you in showing others just how effective your treatments are despite them being full of bologna.

5 Steps To Prove Your Therapy is Effective, Even When it Isn't by Cameron Faller

👉Develop a Strong Allegiance - Create a following of eager clinicians and individuals who believe your claims developing testimonials and statements for why it has helped them.

👉Increase Patient Expectations - Utilize as many contextual effects as you can such as the way you dress, the words you use, the complexity of the intervention, etc. to increase preconceived patient expectations. Strengthening the beliefs of the treatment is more likely to result in a placebo response further enhancing the belief in the treatment.

👉Conduct Research with the Right Trials - It won’t be long before other clinicians claim “where is the research?” Luckily, you can design the right trial by including small sample size and comparing the intervention to a control group that is no treatment (DO NOT compare to an already existing treatment). Most often doing “something” always results better in doing “nothing”.

👉Utilize ‘Weak Spots’ In an RCT - There are several weak spots to take advantage of within your RCT such as failing to blind both assessors and patients, using selective randomization, failing to conceal allocation, and use multiple outcome measures with the hope that one shows significance.

👉Use the Right Publication Strategy - If your results are positive but you lack validity, there are still thousands of journals willing to accept without any peer-review process. Then you can boast your new method as an evidenced-based intervention.

On a more serious note, unfortunately, this process is exactly what several already existing poor quality interventions have done and continue to do claiming they are the “best.” When appraising any new treatment, or deciding to take a new course, make sure you don’t fall victim to these strategies and end up wasting a lot of your money and time.
