Case Study: Critical Appraisal of Quantitative and Qualitative Research for Nursing PracticeIntroduction.ÿUnrelieved postoperative pain remains a common problem despite advances in pain management. Complementary music has been suggested as an adjuvant to the standard of care treatment for postoperative pain.Purpose.ÿThe purpose of this study was to determine if music therapy was an effective adjunct to decrease state anxiety, and increase pain management and environmental noise satisfaction in the postoperative patient.Method.A quasi-experimental nonequivalent control group design was used in this study with participants assigned based on room assignment rather than randomly.

Participants in the intervention group were encouraged to listen to a selection of nonlyrical low decibel (less than 60 db) preprogrammed music, for at least 30 minutes via an MP3 player after their prescribed analgesia was administered.

A significant difference was found from Time One to Time Two in pain management (t = 3.938, p
