Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disorder that is often seen among people of African ancestry. Severe chronic pain is one of the most common complications associated with this disease. In this learning experience, we build on what you learned in the previous course to focus on addressing the devastating impact of unintended racial biases on the adequacy of pain management for our Black patients with sickle cell disease. Learners will gain insights into the cultural and social aspects of the disease within the Black community and will better understand the importance of cultural competence in delivering effective pain management strategies, fostering trust, and improving patient outcomes.
