Module 2: Clinical Manifestations - Treatment, Management, Transfusions, and Medication
A “MEMO” is a 10-minute educational module that delivers clear, concise, relevant information to the learner using a computer, tablet, or mobile-phone for easy access.
Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited life-threatening disease which affects 100,000 Americans and is mostly seen in the black and brown population. Many healthcare teams have not cared for this patient population. Since the care is complex and more patients are being hospitalized, it is important to provide education to the team which includes the specific therapy and treatment.

This offering carries 00.25 ANCC nursing contact hours.
After watching this MEMO, the learner will be able to:
- Discuss the the benefit of blood transfusion
- Describe one treatment option to decrease pain in the patient with Sickle Cell Disease
