Meeting the Challenges in Management of Sickle Cell Disease

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

No longer a life-threatening disease, sickle cell disease (SCD) has become a chronic disease with life-threatening events that requires coordinated care by a multidisciplinary care team. Join Michael R. DeBaun, MD, MPH, and Collin Montgomery, APRN, as they discuss the acute and chronic complications experienced by individuals with SCD and the barriers they often encounter. The faculty offer real-world strategies for overcoming these barriers to improve the quality of life and other health outcomes of patients with SCD. Learn about 4 medications approved for treating acute and chronic complications of SCD and how to optimize their use. Case studies are utilized to share the faculty’s experience and to facilitate integration into clinical practice.
