DaDOM – Daily Dose of Music – is an Erasmus+ project aiming to increase the use of music in the caring professions by training a new generation of vocational care professionals who are aware of and comfortable using musical interventions in their care practice.
Musical interventions when used with patients and residents have been shown to create an increase in well-being, both in the short and long-term, better sleeping and eating, fewer behavioural problems, and, perhaps most importantly, better communication.
Embrace Nederland has developed the module ‘Music in Healthcare’ together with ROC Friese Poort. This program is aimed at VET-students, teachers and healthcare providers. It is an international program that, at the moment, is also taught in schools in Lithuania and Iceland.
