Issue: 
Pages: 
181–7
Synopsis: 
Advances in treatment of sickle cell disease have improved the prognosis for patients. As these patients are living longer, issues of subjective well-being become important. Past studies have mostly focussed on patients’ negative life experiences. This study examines both patients’ positive and negative experiences, as well as their satisfaction with life.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: This study compared the subjective well-being of adults with homozygous sickle cell (SS) disease to a matched group of healthy adult peers. The differential influence of sociodemographic factors on the subjective well-being of Sickle Cell patients was also examined.
