SICKLE CELL DISEASE: MODERN MANAGEMENT OF A NEOLITHIC DISEASE
Dr Martin Besser, and clinical nurse specialists Vivian Garcia and Ruth Jolley, lead an interesting webinar featuring an overview of the pathophysiology of sickle cell disease (SCD), the impact of vaso-occlusive crises (VOC) and what this means for patients. The faculty also covered prevention and treatment of VOCs, including new therapies in their SCD centre. They concluded by presenting case studies sharing their own experience treating patients and administering these treatments in the growing centre at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.
