Music care initiatives and interventions can fall into ten domains of delivery. Understanding these different dimensions helps healthcare leaders and administrators know what to expect when hiring someone to use music in care, and what various trainings and specialties exist already. It also helps these leaders map what music care initiatives and interventions exist already, plan for innovative music care projects, and hire appropriately trained personnel. Some programs and services may fall into more than domain.
