Sickle Cell Disease: Targeting Complications to Improve Long-Term Implications

Sickle Cell Disease: Targeting Complications to Improve Long-Term Implications


Friday, December 4, 2020

Live, Interactive Virtual Webcast!

3:00 PM – 6:00 PM PST

Overview

Significant acute and chronic pain as well as increased infection risk resulting from hemolytic anemia and vaso-occlusion crisis (VOC) underlying sickle cell disease (SCD) greatly impacts morbidity and mortality. As such, there has been a call to action to develop therapeutics to address these symptoms and their underlying causes. As such, there has been novel therapy made available for patients in late 2019, about which it is vital that clinicians receive timely and relevant education.

This activity is a virtual, interactive symposium that features a panel of expert faculty delivering clinically relevant, patient-centric information about the latest advances in sickle cell management. Focus will be placed on the implementation of practice strategies that align with current guidelines and emerging data. The activity will offer a state-of-the-art clinical update on management of SCD and related complications.

Benefits of Attending

  • Hear best practices for applying guideline recommendations in daily practice
  • Examine potential effects of recent clinical trial data on clinical decision-making
  • Compare and contrast the profiles of current and emerging treatment options
  • Discuss practical approaches to challenging patient cases with exert faculty
  • Ask your questions via our custom interactive platform
