    We do not have patients/parents sign a contract prior to initiation of Hydroxyurea. I am interested to know how this came up in your practice as I have never considered this.

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if any facility had their patients sign a contract acknowledging risks associated with hydroxyurea before initiation of therapy? If so, what do you include?

    Many thanks,
