What conclusions do you hope to reach through this clinical experiment?

"The primary aim of this 180-day long trial is to measure Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy: Breast Cancer (FACT-B) questionnaire scores. Secondary objectives are assessing Intervention efficacy by gauging Attitudes towards art/music, which will be done through 4 Likert questions with a 0 - 40 score range; the higher the score, the better the attitude. Additionally, cognition will also be evaluated via FACT-Cog questionnaires divided into four subscales and featuring a 0 - 72 or 16 point scale for each one. Higher numbers indicate worse cognitive deficits in all cases." - Anonymous Online Contributor
