Abstract:

Following the first Medical Notes project https://www.salford.ac.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0020/152174/medical-notes.pdf , this second report details the research findings on the impact and outcomes from the subsequent phase of the project activity at RMCH which comprised two distinct strands of activity:
• Medical Notes (2) – music-making with children repeatedly admitted as in-patients or for short episodes of repeated treatment
• the Songbirds project which engages children admitted for more than 7 days with acquired brain injury, long-term ventilation needs and those with ongoing, complex, chronic and/or life-limiting conditions.

Both projects were undertaken between September 2013 and September 2015. A third area of research was to identify the development of skills and competency of the apprentice, mentor and supervisor Music for Health trainees and identify the mechanisms through which Music for Health experts facilitate the maturation of mastery over the length of the training programme.

This study was carried out by the University of Salford [email protected] research group on behalf LIME and Central Manchester Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT), and was funded by Youth Music with the support of the Charitable Funds Committee at CMFT.
