Event Information

Title: PACU Manager Summit Luncheon & Presentation: Music Can Change the (Perioperative) World: Streaming Music Programs in the PACU

Description:

After this session you’ll be able to:

  1. Identify the benefits of a music listening program for surgical patients.
  2. Discuss factors to consider when creating a sustainable music list.
  3. Describe tactics postanesthesia care unit leaders can use to advocate for alternative therapies.

Why this is important:

The use of music in the pre- and postoperative care of surgical patients has been extensively researched. Less frequently studied, however, is the modality of music used and the implementation of a holistic music listening program. With the advent of streaming music apps and the ubiquity of access to music through smartphones and similar devices, using “canned” relaxation CDs and boom boxes no longer meets the needs of our patients.


Join leaders from the Cleveland Clinic as they discuss their implementation of streaming music listening programs for their pre- and postoperative patients, demonstrating how this approach has helped reduce preoperative anxiety and postoperative pain. In addition to methodology and results, the presenters will discuss lessons learned from implementing a sustainable music program, including potential barriers imposed by patients and caregivers and how to address them.
