In this contribution, I present the study of the effect of higher derivative terms in the effective potential of a scalar field theory. Preliminary results indicate that quantum correction coming from the higher derivative terms make the curvature of the effective potential, near the origin, becomes flatter. I will discuss how this result could be interesting within a warm inflation scenario.
