Supportive Studies: Psychology : Sickle cell disease


Pediatric patients with sickle cell disease are at greater risk for exhibiting nocturnal enuresis (bedwetting) compared to the general population. This study aims to examine nocturnal enuresis, health-related quality of life, emotional, behavioral and family functioning and stressful events in children and adolescents with sickle cell disease. Child/adolescent participants and their parent/caregiver will complete several paper and pencil questionnaires in addition to an interview about nocturnal enuresis, nocturnal enuresis interventions, and barriers to interventions.
