FREE PSW Webinar December – Music Care – Supporting Loved Ones During the Holidays

Using Music in Palliative and End of Life Care

All of us can use music in our care practice. The music care approach invites us to use music intentionally to improve the experience for everyone in the circle of care. Music can be most powerful at end of life because the depth and breadth of music promotes relaxation, pain control, a sense of well-being, relationship completion, and self-care. In this webinar, Bev Foster shares practical tools, tips, and strategies for paid and unpaid HPC caregivers. Come and be informed and inspired!

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss 10 ways to use music with someone who is dying;
  2. Summarize 5 considerations when integrating music into palliative and end of life care;
  3. Describe effects of music within the circle of care.
