The Comfort Ability Program for Sickle Cell Pain


It is estimated that 50% of adolescents and young adults with sickle cell disease (SCD) will develop chronic pain by the time they reach adulthood. 

Despite over 20 years of research evidence, psychological strategies are vastly underutilized in the treatment of pediatric SCD pain. Therefore, the Comfort Ability Program for Sickle Cell Pain was created to offer:

  • First line intervention (primary prevention)
  • Non-stigmatizing/non-blaming format
  • Evidence-informed education, skills training, and resources for kids and parents
  • Increased access to care
  • Provider training to enhance knowledge translation

The Program consists of: 

  • A workbook 
  • 10 videos
