Evidence to Improve Care

Sickle Cell Disease

Care for People of All Ages


This quality standard addresses care for children, young people, and adults with sickle cell disease. Where appropriate, it also addresses the needs of families and caregivers or other substitute decision-makers. It addresses screening for and the prevention of complications, the assessment and management of acute and chronic complications, and the use of disease-modifying therapies. It applies to all pediatric and adult health care settings (including hospitals, emergency departments, urgent care clinics, and primary care, specialist care, and home and community care settings).
