In July, the GAFP, in conjunction with Alliant Quality, hosted a live webinar on Primary Care Management of Adults with Sickle Cell Disease. The 2-hour webinar with presenters, James Eckman, MD, Professor Emeritus of the Department of Hematology and Oncology at Emory University School of Medicine and Jeanette Nu’Man, MEd, Operations Manager of the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia and Director of Camp New Hope, offered attendees an in-depth look at adults with sickle cell disease who have multiple conditions that impact the entire body. The educational activity focused on primary care physicians and their care teams, by empowering them with the knowledge and resources needed to give evidence-based person-centered care.
Additionally, the presenters provided foundational knowledge and discussed the availability of new regional assessments for care plan development, with telemedicine follow up. The live webinar audience consisted of physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and medical assistants.
