ACRA has recently endorsed “The use of ambient and individual music listening during cardiac rehabilitation in Australia”
This study is being undertaken by a group of researchers in the Department of Physiotherapy at Monash University, Victoria, Australia. They are interested in whether ambient (background) music is used during cardiac rehabilitation or whether individual participants listen to their own selection of music (self-selected music listening) during cardiac rehabilitation exercise sessions. If ambient (background) or self-selected music listening is used, they would like to find out what music is selected, how it is delivered and what factors influence music choice.
Who can take part?: All cardiac rehabilitation providers are invited to take part
What is involved?: An online survey. The survey study should take you 5 minutes to complete and is administered by the Qualtrics survey tool. Your participation in this research is voluntary. You have the right to cease participation at any point during the study.
CR clinicians and programs are being asked to promote the trial to patients and colleagues.
Where can I get more information?: If you have any questions, please contact the Principal Investigator (Dr Annemarie Lee) via email: Annemarie.Lee@monash.edu or phone: 0488021266.
