    Model of care

  •   Presented by:

    Ms Lani Lawson

In response to the restrictions enforced during the COVID-19 pandemic, the senior music therapist at Gold Coast Health introduced a new way of working with patients to reduce isolation, improve wellbeing and enhance self-expression.

Clients were invited to participate in ukulele lessons in the form of individual and group lessons, with patients encouraged to continue learning in their own time. Client behaviour was observed during the lessons with positive changes seen in attention, memory and self-expression. Clients also showed high rates of motivation.
