Hospital Based Massage Therapy: A Call for Competencies



Hospital Based Massage Therapy: A Call for Competencies

By MK Brennan R.N., M.S., L.M.B.T.; Dale Healey, D.C., Ph.D.; Carolyn Tague, M.A., C.M.T.; Beth Rosenthal, M.P.H., M.B.A., Ph.D.



An increasing percentage of hospitals are offering massage therapy to their patients. Massage therapy is the top CAM service provided on an outpatient basis.

The ACIH’s HBMT Task Force was formed to explore the need for a set of standard competencies for the practice of massage therapy in hospital environments, given that no such resource exists. A standard set of competencies will be useful to hospitals, massage therapy schools and massage therapists themselves.

The task force designed a survey that was distributed to a convenience sample of hospitals to assess various elements of their massage therapy programs.

Thirty-two out of 37 hospitals that received the survey completed it, resulting in an 87 percent response rate. With recognition of a small convenience sample, we believe the high response rate and the extent to which respondents provided in-depth information to the open-ended questions indicates interest in and a recognized need for HBMT competencies.
