Music Therapy

 

The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital - Music Therapy

 

The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital conducted interdisciplinary research to explore the effectiveness of music therapy interventions on adolescents’ who undergo painful orthopedic surgery.

Due to the outcomes of this study, music therapy is becoming an important clinical intervention for post-operative pain at The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

 

The Task

For successful music therapy intervention, patients (& parents) need proper exposure to what music therapy is & the benefits it can provide before they undergo surgery.

To educate patients & parents on the benefits of music therapy, we created training videos that families will be exposed to pre-surgery at The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

 

The Mission

To explore the impact of exposing families to music therapy pre-surgery, The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital will conduct research utilizing the training videos.

We’re thrilled to be a part of this research study and the mission to ease pain and anxiety for patients & parents at The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
