Live music intervention for cancer inpatients

A Cambridge University study shared the impact on cancer patients and the healing process.

“242 cancer patients upon admission to and at discharge from the hospital. Among them, 103 were hospitalized during which time a live concert took place (intervention group), whereas 139 patients were hospitalized when it did not (control group).” “Compared to the control group, patients in the intervention group demonstrated less distress at discharge according to the DT (adjusted estimate of difference = –0.8, p = 0.001), lower HADS–Anxiety (–1.7, p < 0.001) and HADS–Depression scores (–1.3, p = 0.001), and higher scores on all the well-being scales.”
