Music Therapy and Palliative Care

About the Course:

Evidence about the effectiveness of music therapy for improving the quality of life of palliative care patients is positive but weak in terms of risk of bias. These two articles explain two different studies that were done to address this lack of research. The first study takes a general view of music therapy while the second focuses on a more specific technique called “song of life”.
