Abstract/Description: The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the effects of single-session music therapy on pain, discomfort, and anxiety in in-patient hospice patients. Participants were adults (N=24) receiving hospice care at an in-patient hospice unit. Participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups: experimental (single-session music therapy) and no contact control. Music therapy sessions consisted of Iso principle or music-based life review. The control group received standard care, with no additional services provided. Physiological measures of heart rate, respiration rate, and oxygen saturation level were taken pre- and post-intervention in the music therapy group, and before and after 20 minutes in the control group. Objective nonverbal indicators of pain were also taken during the study-related sessions. Three repeated-measures ANOVAs found no significant differences between groups on physiological measures. Behavioral observations were examined graphically, with trend lines added. While not statistically significant, the music therapy group tended to have more positive responses than the control group. Limitations, implications, and need for future research are discussed.
