SICKLE CELL 911: FAST ACCESS TO GUIDELINES & BETTER CARE Empowering medical professionals to implement evidence-based sickle cell action. Amplifying the patient's voice in care. OPIOIDS & SCD NIH GUIDELINES COMPLICATIONS ASH POCKET GUIDES SCD EDUCATION SICKLE CELL 911 About the SAFE(R) Initiative a compilation of the NIH guides specific to SAFE(R). Access/download SAFE(R) stems from the sad and dangerous reality that many individuals with sickle cell opt to "wait out" an acute episode as long as possible rather than endure a traumatizing trip to the ED where they're likely to be stigmatized and/or undertreated. This treatment time lost equates to eventual organ failure or other tragic complications. Central to the SAFE(R) Initiative is the Sickle Cell 911 (#SCD911) card, the key to a site dedicated to acute sickle cell care, containing NIH guidelines in an easy-access form. For providers, Sickle Cell 911 serves as a portable portal to evidence-based practices, knowledge and resources for treating SCD and its complications. For the patient, it's evidence-based back up of information many have already shared to no avail. Or details they're too sick to effectively relay by the time they arrive in your ED. For us, it's a small way to take big steps toward catching up the adult medical community on strides pediatric practitioners have been making for the last 50 years: We've succeeded not only in getting sickle cell babies beyond the critical first five years, but we've now catapulted them into adulthood and find there is little safety net for their treatment and care. This reality shouldn't exist. You can be the change. "Only about 1 in 4 patients with sickle cell disease receive the standard of care described in current guidelines, and many studies have shown that patients do not receive treatment for their pain as soon as, or in appropriate doses as, other patients." -HHS Office of Minority Health #SickleCell911 #BlackPatientLivesMatter #EliminateHealthDisparities Join forces with SCDAA-MI!

We are committed to protecting their access to the appropriate and safe use of opioids, while developing more effective ways to prevent and treat SCD pain.” -Adm.
