Adult Sickle Cell - Resident Curriculum

It is challenging for Arkansas Physicians to provide optimal care to adult sickle cell patients. It is presumed that many adults with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) in Arkansas don’t regularly see a primary care physician.  Thus, they are forced to react to their disease crises, instead of focusing on a preventative approach to managing their disease before it becomes critical.  This is expensive – not only for the patients, but for the state.  As the statewide leader in health care, UAMS is charged with finding a better way to manage SCD patients, and it aims to do so through the Adult Sickle Cell Clinical Program.

Educating primary care physicians, during their residency, regarding evidence based standards of care for SCD will promote their level of confidence and comfort in treating adults with this disease when they enter their medical practice with the hopes of reducing the disparity of Arkansans with SCD by increasing the number of Physicians educated to care for adult patients with SCD.

UAMS Adult Sickle Cell Clinical Program is partnering with the UAMS Regional Programs to educate Resident Physicians regarding Evidence Based Standards of Care for Adult Sickle Cell Disease.

It is our goal that upon completion of the following curriculum and didactic case presentations, the resident physicians will be able to recognize the essential components of preventative and acute management of SCD.

The Adult Sickle Cell Clinical Program realizes the Primary Care Providers of Arkansas need easily accessible resources and support services in order to provide the best standard of care available. Let us help you provide your sickle cell patients with the best possible care. Please see links of resources and support services listed to the left of this page.
