Non-CE Satellite Symposia: Optimizing Iron Chelation in Sickle Cell Disease Management From Pediatric Through Adult Care: East Coast and West Coast Perspectives (SYM6)

Patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) often have organ damage starting in early childhood and progressing with age. Blood transfusions, which are a mainstay for treating stroke and other complications of SCD, may lead to iron overload that can cause further organ damage. Two nurse practitioner experts from academic centers on the east coast and west coast will discuss the importance of managing patients holistically throughout their entire life span to help prevent progressive organ damage due to SCD and iron overload. In addition, they will share their best practices for early monitoring, iron chelation, and transitioning patients from pediatric to adult care.


We thank Chiesi for their generous support of this event.
