Hartford, Connecticut 06106


Purpose:

The proposed study will determine whether the efficacy of WebMAP cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) treatment study generalizes to pediatric sickle cell disease (SCD), and explore whether the intervention is feasible and acceptable to this population. Feasibility of multi-institutional recruitment from sickle cell centers will also be determined. The short-term goal is to produce preliminary data to apply for an R01 proposal to carry out a multi-institutional randomized controlled trial (RCT) of internet-delivered behavioral intervention in a large population of youth with SCD. The long-term goal of this research is to develop effective, easily accessible, behavioral pain interventions for youth with SCD to reduce the long-term impact of pain on function, quality of life, and health service use in this population. The design of this study is an experimental 2 (group) x 3 (time of measurement) randomized controlled trial design to test the acceptability and efficacy of the Web-MAP intervention in reducing pain and functional impairment in youth with sickle cell disease. (Figure 1) Subjects will be randomized to either the behavioral intervention or the online patient education control group. The treatment protocol will be implemented over 8 weeks in Internet-based treatment modules. The primary study outcome is pain and functional impairment measured at baseline, immediately post-treatment, and at 3-month follow-up.
