Attitudes toward patients with sickle cell disease in a multicenter sample of emergency department providers.
The authors aimed to validate a survey that measures attitudes toward sickle cell disease (SCD) patients among emergency department (ED) providers and to compare differences in attitude scores between provider types. They found that, among ED providers, this scale identified a dimension not observed in research with the original instrument among internal medicine providers. They concluded that provider attitudes influence patient-provider interactions and quality of care.

They found that their definition can be used to facilitate a more accurate identification of children with SCD in future studies.
