12:45 PM—1:10 PM MUES Project: Phase Two Results of a Double Blind Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial of Live Preferential Music in Emergency and Trauma
A randomized controlled mixed-methods study utilizing live preferential music for patients in an emergency and level one trauma center, the trial's second phase with 855 patients demonstrated significant reductions in administration of pain medication, and reductions in heart rate and systolic/diastolic blood pressures that persist for two to six hours after the music intervention. Results suggest that LPM may reduce the need for pain medications.
1. Participants will evaluate a research protocol for assessing the impact of live preferential music on emergency department operations.
1:10 PM—1:35 PM Conducting Research on Arts and Health: Perspectives from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Arts Research on Chronic Stress Lab
The presentation will include perspectives of the funder (The National Endowment for the Arts) and a recipient (Drexel University). The NEA's Arts Research on Chronic Stress (ARCS Lab) has two ongoing experimental studies: a) Outcomes of art therapy for cancer patients and their caregivers and, b) Outcomes of music therapy for chronic pain. The research studies also involve transformation of physical spaces and communities with artwork and music.
1:35 PM—1:50 PM Challenges and Opportunities for Research and Practice Combining Arts, Humanities, Design and Health: A Preliminary “View from the Bridge” of Creative Health Collaborations at Arizona State University
In 2017-18 an interdisciplinary team of humanities scholars, designers, artists, health scientists and providers assessed 10 years of systematic and scoping reviews on health interventions integrating design, humanities and/or arts approaches. Results reveal at once the challenges in mapping the landscape of “creative health collaborations,” and many opportunities for groundbreaking interdisciplinary research, education and program development.
