Calling all people with Sickle Cell Disease to participate in a research study.
The study is sponsored by Ms. Phyllis Bazen, MSN, FNP-C, a Doctoral Candidate at the University of Rochester School of Nursing. Ms Bazen is the Study Coordinator.
The purpose of the study is to explore the most common stressors that adults with SCD cope with and to explore the effects that these stressors have on mood and/or quality of life perceptions.
People with Sickle Cell Disease have many things that bring stress; pain, depression, hopelessness, etc. etc. etc. We have to live on despite these stressors and try to have a meaningful, productive lives...anyway.
The best way to contact Ms. Bazen is the web site contact page, her cell phone, email, or 1-800-464-8668 (in US) See card below for information.
If you decide to participate in this study, you will be speaking with Ms. Bazen who conducts a one-on-one private (confidential) phone interview. In this interview, Ms. Bazen will ask a series of questions related to living with Sickle Cell Disease and related stresses.
The outcome of this study is to gather data related to the stress that Sickle Cell patients endure and find ways to better treat them (us).
