    Hi Meghan,

    I wanted to see if you were able to gather any information on this topic? We are interested in developing individualized pain plans for our sickle cell patients in frequent crisis. I would love to hear any feedback you have received. 

    Thank you,

    I wanted to know if any organizations have a pathway for pain control for Sickle Cell patients that would include a PCA being initiated in the ED setting versus waiting to start a PCA until the patient arrives to an admission unit.
