Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is an inherited blood disorder seen in 80,000 people in the US and millions worldwide. Affected individuals develop anemia, recurrent episodes of excruciating acute pain, chronic pain and many other complications and may lead to a shortened lifespan. Available treatments can help relieve pain and prevent further organ complications. This educational program will focus on educating providers on new insights into the pathophysiology and comprehensive management of SCD and on the appropriate condition specific approach to the clinical dilemma of acute and chronic pain management in this lifelong disease in light of the current epidemic of opioid overuse in the US.
