CRITICALLY APPRAISED TOPIC TITLE Effectiveness of music for patients with reported pain or disability Notes on the Title The title may or may not be declarative (ie one that declares the findings of the appraisal). If a series of studies are being appraised and synthesised into a CAT, it may be better to use a more descriptive title (eg “Effectiveness of X or Y for children with autism”) AUTHOR Prepared by Jane Doe Date November 3, 2017 Email address [email protected] Review date [Usually 2 years later] CLINIAL SCENARIO Your patient has pain and visible stress (either from a disability, disease, surgery, injury, or unknown cause) while stationary, performing active range of motion, passive range of motion, and exercises. The patient/patient’s family has read articles that said integrating music therapy into therapy sessions helps to improve the patient on different levels of life. The patient/patient’s family wants your advice. Would this help? FOCUSSED CLINICAL QUESTION In patients with reported pain and stress, does integrating music therapy into therapy sessions or not integrating, influence the difference in reduction of pain and stress and improve activities of daily living? SUMMARY OF SEARCH [Best evidence appraised and key findings] Demonstrated to relax, distract, calm anxiety, ease pain and discomfort, provide pleasant experience, and relieve tension. Improves quality of life and patient’s ability to function Distraction can be the key to overcoming painful and stressful components Pain is significantly lowered while listening to music CLINICAL BOTTOM LINE Evidence suggests listening to music while performing everyday life activities helps to decrease the reported pain. From this evidence, we can conclude that listening to music while in physical therapy will have a great impact on the outcome of the patient. It will help improve the activities of daily living by distracting and relaxing the patient while in physical therapy. This will help the patient return to normal living in a less amount of time. Using music as an intervention in patients with a disability, injury, and pain, will help improve the outcome. Important note on the limitation of this CAT This critically appraised topic has been individually prepared as part of a course requirement and has been externally peer-reviewed by a professional.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
