Abstract [en]

Aim: In this presentation a study protocol for a web-based health promotion intervention for music students, and the rationale behind it, will be described. The aim is to develop a new dynamic web-portal with an interactive multimodal health intervention program for musicians and music students, and perform a controlled feasibility and effect study among music students.Methods: A web-based competence development and coaching program for music students in Sweden will be developed and performed according to a cognitive approach with focus on the students own goals. The program will include knowledge concerning how to promote cognitive and emotional coping in performance situations; ergonomically sound playing postures; as well as how to prevent bodily symptoms, mental distress and hearing disorders. Participants will be music students from two regions in Sweden, Skåne and Norrbotten. The intervention group will have access to the web-based program together with web-based group coaching, while the control group will receive general web-based information. The intervention will continue for 6 month and outcome measures will be collected before, after intervention and after 12 months to evaluate the feasibility and health effects of the intervention. Expected outcomes: It is reasonable to believe that an increased awareness of healthy and balanced positions while playing, systematic use of pauses and variation during rehearsal, stress management skills and a sound attitude towards control of e.g. playing related fatigue and pain can improve the music students’ prerequisites for a healthy and sustainable working life. Discussion/Conclusion: This project will contribute with knowledge about feasibility and effects of e-health solutions specifically designed for music students and musicians. Feasible and efficient e-health solutions for musicians and other performing artists can have major impact for these professions in Sweden due to the large distances and the scarceness of specialized occupational health care providers within performing arts medicine.Acknowledgement: This research is supported by the Areas of excellence in research and innovation at Luleå university of technology - Innovative art and science, who have granted funding for project initiation.
