Identifying Patient-centered Barriers and Preferred Strategies to Support Self-efficacy for Medication Adherence With Two-way Text Messaging

About the study

The investigators will explore barriers to improving self-efficacy, or the ability to feel in control of their disease, and medication adherence with text messaging through surveys and interviews with adolescents and adults with SCD cared for at the Vanderbilt Meharry Center of Excellence (VMCE) in Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). The investigators will identify preferences to improve and sustain adherence to daily medication through selection of investigator-proposed or patient-generated text messaging strategies. Finally, the investigators will fill in the literature gaps by describing barriers to self-efficacy and medication adherence among adults with SCD as well as adolescents with SCD who are transitioning to adult care.
