Emergency Medicine Patient_Hero

Faculty Scholarly Interests

The Pediatric Emergency Medicine section focuses on high impact research and quality improvement projects that enhance patient care locally and nationally. The broad range of our faculty's academic interests reflect the responsibility PEM physicians feel for the continuum of emergency care: from pre-hospital treatment, to emergency department care, and through transition to inpatient care, treatment at home or follow-up care.

Implementation of Evidence Based Care for the Acute Treatment of Sickle Cell Disease Pain

Purpose
Sickle cell disease results in life-long pain episodes requiring high rates of emergency department visits and hospitalizations. To help prevent these pain episodes and treat them appropriately when patients seek care, national guidelines for the care of sickle cell disease have been established. Our proposal seeks to determine why providers frequently fail to meet these guidelines.
