Reducing Complications of Therapeutic Blood Transfusion in Sickle Cell Disease 
Online Course

The Georgia REdHHoTT project, with support from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has launched a free, web-based continuing education series to increase awareness of and adherence to evidence-based transfusion practices in sickle cell disease (SCD). Blood transfusion is an established therapy for treating and preventing certain SCD-related complications. The goal of this course is to increase the use of evidence-based practices among primary and emergency health care providers, thereby reducing the rates of transfusion-related complications in these patients.

The course builds on current recommendations and addresses additional aspects of quality, effective SCD management. The introductory module covers general considerations for transfusion in SCD and the genetic and biological foundations of the most common transfusion complications. The remaining modules are case-based scenarios addressing specific areas of concern, including use of blood transfusion during acute illness, delayed hemolytic transfusion reactions, and management of chronic transfusion.

The four modules can be taken independently and have no prerequisites. Continuing education credit is being jointly provided by the CDC, Georgia State University, and Emory University School of Medicine.

For more information about the credits, contact Mary Hulihan, Dr.P.H., mhulihan@cdc.gov.

Development of this course was supported by Cooperative Agreement DD14-1406, funded by the CDC. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the CDC or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
