International dissemination of research and practice development of ProMiMiC

ProMiMiC – Professional Excellence in Meaningful Music in Healthcare (2019-2023) is the research project into person-centred music-making for hospital patients and their carers.

The research project ProMiMiC – Professional Excellence in Meaningful Music in Healthcare – aims to explore interprofessional learning processes and collaboration between musicians and nurses, between musicians and music therapists, and the increase of compassionate skills of nurses. Modules for education and professional development of musicians and nurses have also been developed.
