Abstract

Recent evidence suggests that singing may improve health and wellbeing. The health benefits of singing for young people with cystic fibrosis (CF) have not been explored. This study aims to understand the impact of a singing intervention on hospitalised young people with CF. Participants (n=20) completed a self-report satisfaction checklist following eight individual singing sessions during hospitalisation. Participants' checklist responses were qualitatively analysed using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health for Children and Youth (ICF-CY). The study has found that singing has a positive impact on health, particularly with respect to the Body Functions and Activities and Participation components of the ICF-CY. In addition, participants reported a high degree of enjoyment and satisfaction with the singing programme. The findings support the hypothesis that singing can improve physical and psychological aspects of health. The ICF-CY provides a useful framework to gain a better understanding of the singing experience and its perceived health benefits for young people with CF.
