Implementing a Palliative Medicine Music Therapy Program: A Quality Improvement Project
from American Journal of Hospice and Palliative Medicine
Recent evidence suggests that music therapy, a holistic method of care, potentially is beneficial for symptom management. This quality improvement project aimed to evaluate the effect of music therapy on symptom management and coping skills of patients receiving palliative care and to measure patient satisfaction with the therapy. A secondary aim was to evaluate staff perception of patient outcomes of music therapy services.
