Award Description: This grant award will investigate the effectiveness of the Wireless Pain Intervention Program. The program will consist of: 1) a cell phone/PDA with a program (e-Ouch) that has questions about pain; 2) a web link that will connect youths to resources including educational materials, a psychologist, and nurse practitioner, and 3) a peer social support network using cell phone/PDAs. This model will not only increase access to knowledgeable health care providers of youths with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD), but may also potentially increase the use of wireless technology and create jobs for computer scientists and engineers in the future.
