Barriers to care for persons with sickle cell disease: the case manager's opportunity to improve patient outcomes.
The purpose of this paper was to review the barriers to care for patients with sickle cell disease (SCD). Chronic pain and the perception of addiction, implicit bias, frequent hospitalizations and emergency department visits, clinician and patient knowledge deficits, and SCD stigma all impede the ability to provide evidence-based care for patients with SCD. The authors assert that case managers can coordinate and advocate for appropriate care that improves patient outcomes.
