Statement of Need

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a painful disease with many life-threatening complications including acute chest syndrome, infections, severe anemia, and venous thromboembolism. Patients with SCD often present to the ED and hence, it is critical for clinicians in the emergency department (ED) to be educated so that they can promptly assess and treat acute sickle cell pain and evaluate and treat associated complications. While there are some current therapies for SCD, novel therapies are presently being investigated in clinical trials. It is important for clinicians to be knowledgeable regarding current and emerging therapies for SCD.

This CME Outfitters Snack is included in the 3-part series on management of benign rare blood disorders in the ED. It features a video physician-patient case scenario with hematological insights on the evaluation and management of patients in the ED and current and emerging treatments for SCD.

  • Recognize and manage complications associated with benign rare blood disorders, such as SCD in the emergency department setting.
  • Evaluate clinical data for the efficacy and safety of current and emerging
  • Implement personalized, evidence-based approaches to managing benign rare blood disorders in the emergency department setting.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Explain the complications associated with benign rare blood disorders such as SCD in the emergency department setting.
  • Describe the clinical data for the efficacy and safety of current and emerging treatments for benign rare blood disorders.
