Recommendation details

Recommendation ID: CG143/3
Question: Psychological interventions for patients with an acute painful sickle cell episode:- For patients with an acute painful sickle cell episode, are psychological interventions, in conjunction with standard care, effective in providing pain relief?
Page: 16
Any explanatory
notes (if applicable):
Why this is important:- There was a lack of evidence on the benefits of psychological interventions for managing pain during an acute painful sickle cell episode. An RCT should be conducted in patients with an acute painful sickle cell episode that compares the effectiveness of psychological interventions plus standard care against standard care alone. The RCT should cover the duration of the painful episode, and should assess outcomes such as pain, mood and health status.
