Memories that were once lost are now found, and medication is improved by this one simple healing tool. All these things happen through the healing power of music. Music therapy needs to be used more often in health care because of the many physical and mental benefits it provides. Many people benefit from the efforts brought from music therapy. It helps with several physical and mental disorders including Autism.
It may be known that people benefit from being around horses, but what may not be known by everyone is that it is beneficial to those who may need a little extra. The reason equine therapy is so effective is because no person is indifferent to horses. It has been shown that veterans and children with autism benefit greatly from hippotherapy. Even though there are other forms of animal-assisted therapy, equines seem to have a greater impact in the lives of those suffering from PTSD and of those on the autism spectrum. People are beginning to realize how intelligent horses are.
Then, I can be able to evaluate outcomes. During my assessment of Sara Lin, I was able to find out that she was experiencing a pain level of 6 and was having a hard time breathing. If I had not asked her and assessed her pain, I would not have found out that she was having a hard time breathing and that I needed to educate her about using an incentive spirometer to help ease her breathing, which I actually forgot to do during my first attempt at this scenario. During this scenario, I also learned how important patient education is to help my patient understand her situation and how she should properly care for her condition. For instance, I had forgotten during my first attempt to educate Sara about proper wound care.
the theory is patient-specific because of the patient’s diagnoses and the limited verbal communication. The theory assumptions are helpful with this patient as the nurses make it a priority to interpret cues which reflect his end of life experience and giving prompt intervention to maintain peaceful experience even at his dying moment. The theory was developed be used with terminally ill adult patients and their families/significant others. The theory is not applicable in its totality with non-hospice or palliative care patients. The goal of the end of life care is not to optimize care rather is to provide comfort measures, dignity and peaceful end of life experience.
Luke believed people with “musical greatness” composed classical music, whereas, he believed ballads “could be about anybody – by anybody.” Unlike the situation painted by Durrant and Welch (1995) in the UK, teachers in this study did not experience “elitist” attitudes towards composition from their primary teachers. However, this is possibly due to composition’s minor role in the 1971 curriculum (as creative
Any treatment with acupuncture is therefore based on individual symptoms so there is no treatment protocol for one particular disease. For example when performing a trial on the effectiveness of acupuncture for back pain the trial is riddled with problems from the start whether it is investigating the effectiveness of acupuncture, osteopathy or any other intervention. Chaitow a prominent osteopath comments on the problems encountered when performing clinical trials on back
Do you want to learn how to play a band instrument but find it hard to get private lessons. Do you come to school wishing you could have a community where you and your instrument could make music with others and their instruments? Are you asking yourself why this is so hard? The problem here doesn't have anything to do with you. The problem here is that our school doesn't have a band, the problem here is that city academy believes that they are too small to have a band and they are wrong.
Younger generations are inseparable from their headphone but when asked about music, they become soundless and grow distant. In “Can Music Save Your Life,” college professor Mark Edmundson describes his studies of how music affects the mind and concludes that music makes the generation feel like their voices are heard through the lyrics. He believes that people use music to escape our fears, reality, and to soothe ourselves. When individuals listen to a specific song that opens a door in their minds, they tend to listen to the song repeatedly until it has no effect anymore and the door closes. Music makes people search further into themselves and they begin to flourish through every lyric, every note, and every instrument played in the song.
When testing for Alzheimer’s, it's not all that different than if you were doing it with a different disease. APOE predictive testing is actually not recommended, as said by the Alzheimer’s Society here: “The poor predictive value of is why APOE is not recommended (outside research studies) or available within the NHS” (Society). Regional genetics clinics are actually offer testing to those who have a family history with dementia, so that's nice to
In this case Jerry worked in a one and one setting, which was more suited due to his anger tantrums, which were said to be dangerous. As said in my opening paragraph there are many benefits with music therapy sessions achieving goals such as developing social skills, promoting a child with Autism’s emotional skills. This case study is proof that music therapy works efficiently to the client and is created in order to help one’s well being and physical and mental disability which is powerful to say the
In many clinical studies with patients with dementia, many patients had reduced depression, lessened agitation, and increased movement, when played familiar and likeable music ( a Place for Mom, 2015). Stimulative music and sedative music also cause changes in moods for patients. Stimulative music activates and promotes movement, while sedative music is used when preparing for bed or any change in routine that might cause agitation (Alicia Ann Clair, 2015). Dopamine is a neurotransmitter in the brain. According to Alissa Sauer in his article “Music Therapy Enhancing Cognition” (2014), while listening to music, dopamine is released, and sends pleasure signals to the rest of the body.
I also don’t want my friends and family to dedicate their time to my recovery or vegetative state. There is nothing they could do to help me recover from whatever illness is keeping me in the hospital. I would feel better knowing they are continuing to live their lives. The other value I based my decisions
This is simply not true. Palliative care, also known as comfort care, can be given in conjunction with curative or restorative treatments. Even better, it can be given at any stage of an illness or disease. While palliative care may not be designed to address the underlying cause, it still has been shown to have a dramatic impact on improving a person 's overall condition and extending their life.
Most require two or more witnesses and a notary, to assure that the patient is not forced into consenting to treatment they would not otherwise want. Witnesses generally do not include family members, or the person that the patient appoints as their healthcare proxy, because they may be beneficiaries of the patients estate. In some states, the patient’s doctors or healthcare providers cannot be used as witnesses. The patient does not need to share the content of the documentation with their witnesses. Patients should look into their state laws regarding advanced directive to ensure that the documentation meets the legal requirements ("End-of-Life Decisions - CaringInfo").
"Music therapy is a systematic process of intervention wherein the therapist helps the client to promote health, using musical experiences and the relationships that developed through them as dynamic forces of change (Hodges and Sebald pg 284)”. I watched a youtube video called When Meds Fail: A Case for Music Therapy: Tim Ringgold. The video started off with Tim the music therapist singing a song that he wrote for his daughter. As a Music Therapist Tim knows how important music is for an infant in the whom. “Researcher shows using music during childbirth has a significant drop of perception of pain, anxiety and time itself for mom’s (When Meds Fail).” For infants the auditory system begins and develops as they are still in their mothers.
