Development of a hydroxyurea decision aid for parents of children with sickle cell anemia.
This study developed a decision aid for use of hydroxyurea for parents of children with sickle cell anemia. There are national evidence-based guidelines, but they do not offer strategies for implementation. A multicomponent decision aid was developed via a needs assessment, clinic observations and iterative feedback. The decision aid was considered useful by the 75 parents and 28 clinicians who participated in all phases of the study.
