OER Description:

These open educational resources are perhaps some of our most important. They are the result of a research project funded by the UK Economic & Social Research Council and conducted between De Montfort University, University of York and Loughborough University. The first report provides some essential background information to sickle cell disease, which is a complex condition with symptoms ranging from stroke, silent stroke, chronic pain and acute painful crises.

This research project explored how young people are treated in schools, and as a result, a help guide has been produced which many schools are now using and have adapted to provide support and better care of sickle suffers in their education setting.
