When I speak, one of my main messages is to strongly encourage healthcare professionals to use more music (and frankly, less TV!) at the hospital and hospice bedside. Sometimes, they “push back” and tell me they are maxed out and already have too much on their docket. To that, I say I appreciate ALL that they do and if they take two minutes to put on a CD of relaxing music, it will change everyone’s day – theirs, the patients and the families they serve.
