Brief Summary:

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is the most common genetic disease in France. Its consequences on patient's life-course and quality of life need to be precisely identified among French patients and their family to be able to improve patients care according to their specific needs.

The aim of the study is to accurately describe the impact of SCD on quality of life of patients living in France, or their family (for minor patients). The consequences of the disease on professional life, education and material condition of patients or their parents will be described by the patients themselves.


Condition or disease
Sickle-cell Disease (SCD)

Detailed Description:

This is a retrospective study. Patients or parents of minor patients living in France and suffering from SCD will be informed about the study and enrolled during their usual follow-up, or by patients' associations. They will be asked to answer an anonymous survey online relating to their whole life-course with SCD and exploring different aspects of the consequences of the disease on their life. It contains 4 different sections:

  1. socio-demographic questions to establish a respondent profile
  2. health status of the respondent to establish the severity of the disease
  3. education, professional life, material and economic situation
  4. quality of life through MOS SF-36 questionnaire This is a one-shot survey, which will take approximatively 20 to 30 minutes to answer by the respondent.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Describe the disease impact on quality of life through description of professional life, education and material condition of patients, or their parents (for minor patients), suffering from sickle-cell disease and living in France. [ Time Frame: Once at enrollment ]
    Measure of mutual impact of health status on patients educational and socio-professional life course.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. - Study the factors of heterogeneity of patients' profiles - Explore the causal relation between health status and employment conditions, education, material and economic situation - Assess the patients' needs in care and socio-economic support [ Time Frame: Once at enrollment ]

    The perceived impact of disease on education will be confirmed by:

    • Type of education adjustment introduced
    • The level and the cause of leaving full-time education
    • The intensity of school absences
    • The feeling of discrimination on school time

    The impact of disease on professional life will be measured by:

    • The professional status
    • The sick leaves
    • The feeling of discrimination at work
    • The compatibility of work conditions with the disease

    The impact of disease on material and economic situation will be assessed by:

    • The income level
    • The patient cost sharing
    • The remaining balance
    • The recognition of handicap
    • The recognition of disability

    The quality of life score of respondents:

    - Medical outcome study short form 36 item health survey (MOS SF-36)
