PINPOINT: Gaming Technology to Engage Adolescent Sickle Cell Patients in Precision Pain Phase II

About the study

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a common genetic disorder characterized by episodes of pain, yet programs to assist SCD adolescents with better identification and communication about pain are lacking. Research shows that interactive gaming technology can enhance adolescents’ learning, and can be especially effective in delivering health-related messages and tools to improve self-care. Pinpoint is an interactive gaming app that will be tested in a Phase II project to determine whether the app assists SCD teens with improving their communication and identification skills for pain self-report.
