Music therapy intervention for the mother-preterm infant dyada: proposal of intervention in the neonatal intensive care unit

This report of experience describes the Music therapy intervention for the mother-preterm infant dyad - MUSIP, that aims at sensitizing the mother to sing to her preterm infant, during the hospitalization in the Neonatal Intensive Unit Care. The MUSIP is organized in eight sessions, alternating individual sessions with the mother and sessions with the mother-infant dyad. During the implementation of the MUSIP, the music therapist carried out the intervention in a NICU of a public hospital with nine mothers and their preterm infants. Several challenges were found regarding the availability of the families and the demands of the hospital. Therefore, it was necessary to adapt the MUSIP, by making the number of sessions more flexible, the kind of activities that were proposed, as well as the alternation between the sessions with the mother and with mother-infant dyad. Evidences suggest that MUSIP contributed to the mother ’ s and the infant ’ s ‘ empowerment ’ and to their ‘ communicative musicality ’ , enhancing the mother-preterm infant interaction. The MUSIP is a low-cost intervention with a big potential of long-term effects, since, besides supporting the dyad in the NICU, it guides the mother to sing autonomously for her infant during the hospitalization and after discharge. Future studies are needed to expand the MUSIP and to investigate its short and long-term effects for the mother, the preterm infant and mother-infant interaction.

Conclusion: Focusing on high to moderate level evidence, our review highlighted that rhythmic auditory stimulation has a positive effect on gait and balance; that receptive music therapy improves mood as well as some cognitive functions; that there is not enough evidence to determine the effectiveness of active music therapy and melodic intonation therapy. High-quality trials with large samples would be necessary to further assess and/or recommend these interventions. PMID: 31170034 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The value of music to people with dementia is widely acknowledged [1,2]. However, research into music and dementia is still a relatively new and developing field, and appears to have evolved fairly independently within different disciplines such as music therapy, psychology and nursing. Systematic reviews synthesise evidence about the effects of music, but tend to focus on one type of intervention or outcome variable, such as music therapy [3] or anxiety [4], and include only certain types of studies [5].

Conclusions: By evaluating the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory and the participant’s vital measurements (including pulse, respirations per minute, and blood pressure), this study can assess if music therapy sessions can be useful for lessening patient anxiety and increasing relaxation during diagnostic imaging studies. Once our data is collected, it will be analyzed and presented at the annual meeting.

This study investigated the feasibility and effectiveness of introducing music therapy for patients on 4 inpatient units in a large urban medical center. Capacitated and incapacitated patients on palliative care, transplantation, medical intensive care, and general medicine units received a single bedside session led by a music therapist. METHODS: A mixed-methods, pre-post design was used to assess clinical indicators and the acceptability and feasibility of the intervention. Multiple regression modeling was used to evaluate the effect of music therapy on anxiety, pain, pulse, and respiratory rate. Process evaluation ...
