Caregiver-patient communication is a central element of the therapeutic relationship and a powerful placebo. While poorly adapted communication can have harmful effects, adequate communication offers many benefits for the patient and the caregiver. Therapeutic communication (TC), a set of strategies inspired by clinical hypnosis, is easy to learn and apply. In addition to reinforcing an empathetic attitude, TC appears to be effective in various clinical situations, particularly for its effects on pain and anxiety. In order to better understand the interest of CT in internal medicine, we have conducted a literature review on its efficacy during different medical procedures.
