Improving the Care of Patients with Sickle Cell Disease

September 27, 2021

Overview 

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is one of the most common genetic hematologic diseases in the
world affecting an estimated 100,000 Americans and millions of people across the globe. This
educational event will address the acute care of patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) by
identifying some emergent presentations as well as highlighting some of the barriers to care
patients with SCD may face. These barriers primarily include skepticism and bias which can
lead to missed or undertreated devastating sequelae. Patients can also sometimes face
challenges accessing, establishing, and maintaining care with physicians. An understanding
of the impact of these challenges and the potential harmful outcomes may lead to a decrease
in their incidence.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for physicians, physician associates, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, social workers, medical students, residents and fellows providing routine care to patients. 

Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, the learner should be better able to: 

  • Review sickle disease as a lifelong disease entity
  • Describe acute conditions associated with sickle cell disease
  • Discuss the barriers to care that patients with SCD may face and the intersection of the biases involving chronic pain, chronic illness, and racism
