The Effect of Mozart Music in Reducing Depression Levels among Hospital Nurses in Malaysia
This research aims to determine the effectiveness of Mozart’s music in reducing depression among nurses in order to increase the quality of healthcare services in Malaysia. The research method that was used for this research was quasi-experimental and an Aura machine was used to collect data. A significant difference in aura colour before and after a 14-day treatment of Mozart Music was also observed. In order to help the nurses to reduce depression; minimise disturbance during working hours; and have a more proactive and productive environment, treatment sessions were set up for those who scored a moderate depression level using Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). There were two experiment groups; the Mozart Music group and the non-treatment group of which, each group consisted of 15 participants. Treatment session was conducted daily for 14 days with each session taking approximately 10 minutes. After 14 days, participants were given the same questionnaires from before to answer once again. This research contributes a new treatment plan to alleviate the burden that nurses are facing in reducing depression by giving them more options of alternative treatments that suit themselves apart from the current treatments such as meditation and social support. In conclusion, Mozart’s music shows significant results in reducing depression among nurses.
