Music listening as a nursing intervention

McCaffrey R and Locsin RC presented a paper at Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida, USA, that recommended the development of a guide for using music listening as a nursing intervention.

Use of music listening as an effective, noninvasive intervention designed to assist nurses in creating a healing environment to promote health and well-being has come to be favored recently among a number of Western medical practices.

Music has demonstrated effectiveness in reducing pain, decreasing anxiety, and increasing relaxation. In addition, music has been used as a process to distract persons from unpleasant sensations and empower them with the ability to heal from within.

As nurses develop practice patterns that are evidence based, the use of music listening could become an integral nursing intervention.

Previously too nurses have used complementary therapies for many years to relieve anxiety, promote comfort, and reduce or alleviate pain.

Snyder M, Wieland J from School of Nursing and Center for Spirituality and Healing, University of Minnesota School of Nursing, Minneapolis, USA, have described many therapies available for nurses to consider when planning care for patients with chronic pain. The increasing body of scientific knowledge is providing more guidance about the efficacy of specific therapies.

As with all interventions, ongoing evaluation about the effectiveness of a therapy for each patient is an important component of quality nursing care. Complementary therapies provide an avenue for nurses to be autonomous in furthering the relief of chronic pain, as many of these therapies fall within the domain of nursing.

Incorporating selected therapies into the plan of care provides multiple opportunities for nurses to demonstrate caring, a premier characteristic of nursing. The scientists urge the importance of pursuing further research in this direction.
