The Sickle Cell Care Coordination Initiative (SCCCI) seeks to improve care provided to youth and adults with sickle cell disease in Northern California. We are one of 8 programs in the U.S. funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to use implementation science to improve outcomes for individuals with sickle cell disease between the ages of 15 and 45 years.
The SCCCI brings together experts in sickle cell disease clinical care and clinical research, health services research, implementation and participatory research and emergency medicine. Their core team also includes individuals with sickle cell disease, their family members and dedicated community members.
Their aims are:
-increase the number of youth and adults with sickle cell disease who receive preventive care;
-support providers so they increase their adherence with evidence-based guidelines for sickle cell disease care; and
-support youth and adults with sickle cell disease to access needed resources within their communities to improve their quality of life and quality of care. The primary goal of the center is to decrease the preventable morbidity and mortality that this population is vulnerable to.
