Summary
Musicologist April Greenan outlines use of music in western medicine as an agent of both healing and prevention, reviewing data documenting music's beneficial effects on patients, and suggests ways that health professionals might purposefully employ music in patient care. How might doctors guide patients to use music on their own in managing pain, anxiety, depression, the side-effects of chemotherapy? Given the ubiquity and affordability of recorded music today, might it represent a cost-effective way to help improve health care and health? A John F. Anderson Memorial Lecture
