CG143 Sickle cell acute painful episode: educational resource

This education package has been developed to help you implement the NICE clinical guideline on the management of acute painful sickle cell episode in hospital.

The guideline contains a recommendation about training, and this education package has been specifically designed to help you deliver this recommendation:

All healthcare professionals who care for patients with an acute painful sickle cell episode should receive regular training, with topics including:

  • pain monitoring and relief
  • the ability to identify potential acute complications
  • attitudes towards and preconceptions about patients presenting with an acute painful sickle cell episode [1.1.23]

The education package outlines a training session that can be delivered to a group in about 1 hours. Key points are summarised on each slide – but do remember to also refer to the notes for presenters for each slide which outline additional information that you should try to incorporate into the presentation. 

Individual learners can also use the education package by working their way through the slides and notes for presenters.

The education package includes hyperlinks to other websites so you will need to be connected to the internet.

 Disclaimer

This resource is an implementation tool and should be used alongside the published guidance. The information does not supersede or replace the guidance itself.
