Abstract

Post-operative pain is a common problem that often is not eliminated completely by pharmacologic means. Music therapy as an adjuvant to other pain control methods is shown to help combat this issue. Therefore, the purpose of this project is to implement a hospital policy that requires music therapy for post-operative patients who request it based on research findings. The evidence on music therapy use in the post-operative period shows a decrease in pain, an increase in relaxation, and an increase in environmental noise satisfaction among other positive findings. In conclusion, the use of music therapy in the post-operative period is suggested, as it can increase patient satisfaction, while also being economically feasible.
