Aims: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of pain education combined with music intervention on pain levels and the beliefs about and satisfaction with pain management.
Methods: This study was conducted using a quasi-experimental pretest–posttest design involving an experimental group and control group. The sample size was 60; each group consisted of 30 participants. The control group received routine care, whereas the participants in the experimental group received pain education and a music intervention program.
Results: No significant difference was observed in average pain levels between the two groups. Most patients in the experimental group considered the effects of music to be satisfactory in relieving pain. No difference was observed in beliefs about and satisfaction with pain management between the two groups.
Conclusions: The results can be used as a reference in clinical practice for joint replacement patients who require pain and anxiety management.
