Steve Tremain MD, Cynosure’s Physician Advisor and Pat Teske BSN, MHA, Cynosure Implementation Officer, led a webinar on Sickle Cell Cross Cutting Strategies targeting an Alabama audience comprised of physicians, pharmacists, nursing leaders, quality leaders, patient & family advisors, and readmissions reduction professionals on March 5, 2019.

Some key messages of our webinar included: Patients in Sickle Cell crises should receive optimal pain control within 60 minutes of arrival. Sickle cell patients are often labeled as drug seekers and do not receive proper treatment. Patient and family engagement are critical to both management of acute pain and to help prevent readmissions.

This webinar was sponsored by the Alabama Hospital Association and the HRET HIIN.
