Musical Assessment of Gerontologic Needs and Treatment - The MAGNET Survey
Roberta S. Adler
A unique integration of assessment components based on the American Music Therapy Association standards of practice, MAGNET complies with the criteria of the minimal data system (MDS) and the requirements for accreditation of facilities that provide services. MAGNET also complies with the Scope of Practice of the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT).
It is a significant contribution to music therapy program development to assure life quality for older adults. Now this assessment tool is available in an interactive eBook format, allowing users to fill out and save assessment forms online. This integration of the assessment tool and technology allows Music Therapists to administer and organise assessments with ease.
