Sickle Cell Trait Counseling Resource Toolkit

Sickle Cell Trait Counseling Resource ToolkitThis toolkit was developed by SCDAA grantee network teams to help providers counsel individuals and families recently diagnosed with sickle cell trait. The toolkit includes educational materials about sickle cell trait and sickle cell disease that can be reviewed by families on a periodic basis.

These resources were developed through the Working to Improve Sickle Cell Healthcare (WISCH) projects. WISCH is NICHQ’s multi-year umbrella name for two sickle cell projects, the Sickle Cell Disease Treatment Demonstration Program (SCDTDP) and the Sickle Cell Disease Newborn Screening Program (SCDNBSP). As the National Coordinating Center for these programs, NICHQ is happy to share guidance, tools and resources that teams from around the country have created, tested or used to improve care for patients with sickle cell disease.
