Abstract/Description

Post-operative pain is a common problem in patients that may impede the progression of treatment if it is not managed properly. Music therapy as an adjunct to other pain management interventions has been proven to help relieve pain and related anxiety in these patients. The purpose of this project is to construct and implement a hospital policy that promotes the use of music therapy in post-operative patients who accept the intervention. Evidence has shown that the use of music therapy in post-operative patients has decreased overall pain, increased patient relaxation, and increased environmental noise satisfaction along with other benefits. Considering the economic feasibility and increase of patient satisfaction, the use of music therapy in the post-operative period is suggested.
