Description

Invitation to PhD Defence by Ilan Sanfi

PhD thesis: ”The Effects of Music Therapy as Procedural Support on Distress, Anxiety, and Pain in Young Children under Peripheral Intravenous Access: a Randomised Controlled Trial” 

Peripheral intravenous access (PIVA) is an umbrella term for all types of invasive procedures that require insertion of needles into a vein (e.g. intravenous catheters, blood drawing). In spite of administration of local anaesthesia, PIVA may cause pain in addition to elevated levels of anxiety and distress.  Three studies have examined the effect of music therapy procedural support (MTPS) under needle procedures. Consequently, this study aims at examining the effects of MTPS in an RCT. Moreover, the study addresses clinical aspects of the applied MT intervention and provides research-based clinical tools.
