Abstract

Aims: This paper reports findings of a pilot singing intervention to assist people living with chronic pain.

Methods: Pain Management Clinic outpatients participated in 10 weekly group singing sessions. Benefits of the intervention and its impact on participants’ (N = 4) experiences of pain were explored qualitatively.

Results: Three main themes comprising over 20 separate codes indicated physical, psychological, and social dimensions associated with the intervention. People with chronic pain identify multiple benefits from participating in a group singing program.

Conclusions: Results indicate that group singing in chronic pain settings has multiple benefits and may positively complement clinical outcomes, serving as an effective adjunct to conventional pain management care and nursing.
