AbstractThis proposal is for a music therapy program for the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) at WakeMed Children’s Hospital, located at the WakeMed Raleigh Campus in Raleigh, North Carolina. The children’s hospital treats a variety of medical issues including critical illnesses, injuries, automobile accident injuries, life-threatening childhood diseases, and respiratory and heart conditions. Music therapy is an evidence-based therapy that can not only effectively address treatment goals, but can offer comfort, joy, and a means of self-expression for patients and their families. A full-time music therapist can work with patients in individual and/or group settings using various methods and techniques to meet each patient’s individual goals and needs. Establishing a music therapy program at WakeMed Children’s Hospital would be beneficial for the care of infants, children, families, and their caretakers.
