Music Therapy for Pain Management

Music Therapy

The University of Adelaide, Elder Conservatorium was successful in obtaining a research grant from the Hospital Research Foundation in the area of Music Therapy. Working in conjunction with the Centre for Creative Health, the University – through Music Therapist Dr Patsy Tan – will introduce Music Therapy into clinical practice and examine the effectiveness of Music Therapy intervention on the perception of pain and anxiety of post-operative patents. While significant research exists overseas, the aim is to validate the non-invasive, non-pharmacological interventions in a South Australian context.
