Educational Resources


Several different types of resources are included.  These resources are designed to be beneficial for healthcare professionals (e.g. physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants) who are not sickle cell experts and practice in a variety of settings (e.g. hospitals, primary care clinics, and emergency departments). 

  • “SCD Conferences” include select presentations from a two day, yearly SCD conference held at Duke.

  • “Short presentations for online learning” were specifically developed for adaptation to hospital-based, online learning systems. Each presentation includes 10 slides of content, and two post test questions. Short videos are included in many of these slide sets.

  • “Videos” include links to professional videos that serve as additional learning opportunities. Some of the videos from the short presentations are also listed.
