    Bradt's Cochrane review on music interventions for people with cancer published

    Joke Bradt, PhD, professor, Creative Arts Therapies, is lead author of an update to the Cochrane review "Music interventions for improving psychological and physical outcomes in people with cancer". This Cochrane systematic review is the second update of the previously published Cochrane reviews (Bradt 2011; Bradt 2016). This second update includes 29 new trials. In total, the evidence rests on 81 trials with a total of 5592 participants.

    This Cochrane review is one of most accessed and cited cancer Cochrane reviews. It has played a central role in getting music therapy included as recommended service in national guidelines for cancer care in several European countries. For the update of this review she collaborated with Katherine Myers-Coffman, PhD, graduate of the PhD in Creative Arts Therapies program, Jacelyn Biondo, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in Bradt's lab, and Cheryl Dileo, PhD, from Temple University.

    The review can be accessed here: Bradt_J, Dileo_C, Myers-Co_man_K, Biondo_J. Music interventions for improving psychological and physical outcomes in people with cancer. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2021, Issue 10. Art. No.: CD006911. DOI: 10.1002/14651858.CD006911.pub4.

  • Joke Bradt Co-Principal Investigator on $3.3M PCORI Grant

    Jun Mao, MD, chief, Integrative Medicine service, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and PI, and Joke Bradt, PhD, professor, Department of Creative Arts Therapies and co-PI were awarded a $3.3M PCORI grant for a large-scale comparative effectiveness trial.

    The trial will compare the effectiveness of virtually delivered cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with virtually delivered music therapy for the reduction of anxiety in cancer survivors. Both music therapy and CBT are effective for treating anxiety symptoms. However, it remains unclear which treatment is better for which individuals. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted life around the world and caused significant psychological distress for many people. More than ever, there is an important need for effective mental health treatments that everyone can easily access. Both music therapy and CBT can be delivered via videoconferencing to reach people who may have difficulty attending in-person visits.

    The research team, under leadership of Mao and Bradt, is conducting a clinical trial to compare the short- and long-term effectiveness of music therapy and CBT delivered via videoconferencing to address anxiety and related symptoms in cancer survivors. The team is also trying to identify how individual characteristics (for example: sex, race/ethnicity, educational background) may affect the treatment results.
