Vroom DC, Rodgers-Melnick SN, Brown T, Owusu-Ansah A, Dusek JA

The purpose of this study was to (i) determine the feasibility of routine pain screening; (ii) identify and describe various clinical pain presentations; and (iii) understand preferences/resources related to engaging in integrative health and medicine (IHM) modalities within an outpatient pediatric SCD clinic.
