About the Session

This presentation will review management strategies for addressing pain in sickle cell disease. It will highlight both pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment regimens. It will also briefly discuss the different levels of pain in sickle cell disease through the most commonly known channels of pain crises (acute chest syndrome, gall stones and avascular necrosis) and suggest ways of managing them.

We intend to make the presentation as interactive as possible as participants will be encouraged to ask questions from the beginning.

Sickle cell disease will also be discussed in details especially because of those who have little or no knowledge of it.
