NOAH is working to develop a research database for the field of Arts in Health that will allow keyword and category searches, and offer guidance and information on the types of research found. Research will be categorized in areas such as:

  • Qualitative
  • Quantitative
  • Peer-Reviewed
  • Use of a Control Group
  • Multi-Site
  • Interdisciplinary
  • Blinded study

NOAH’s goal is to find areas of need and to support rigorous research-based construction of studies and resources for professionals and programs in the field.

We appreciate your patience while this database is being built, and invite you to explore the below resources for your research efforts.
