Medication Administration + Education
Subjects will be asked to monitor their daily iron chelator administration by taking a video recording of preparing it and ingesting at least one sip during months 1-3 and completing the medication administration log during months 1-6. During months 1-6 subjects will meet with study staff and receive educational materials on a monthly basis. The data collected will be analyzed to describe patient adherence and comfort level with the process of daily recording of medication management.
Behavioral: Video recording
Subjects will be asked to monitor their daily iron chelator administration by taking a video recording of preparing it and ingesting at least one sip. The data collected will be analyzed to describe patient adherence and comfort level with the process of daily recording of medication management.Behavioral: Medication Administration Log
Subjects will be asked to monitor their daily iron chelator administration by completing the medication administration log on a daily basis. The data collected will be analyzed to describe patient adherence and comfort level with the process of daily recording of medication management.Behavioral: Education
During this first six months period a study staff member will see subjects at each scheduled clinic visit they attend for regular blood transfusion.
Subjects will receive educational material and short quizzes related to sickle cell disease, thalassemia, iron overload, or iron chelation.
- Increase adherence to medication regimen [ Time Frame: Baseline, 3 month, 6 month, 12 month ]Assess whether intensive training with education and daily remote monitoring with provider involvement has a lasting positive impact on adherence to medication management. Mean percent adherence in the pre-study periods and each of the study periods will be analyzed and compared. The ANOVA will be performed to compare adherence to medication administration during periods of intensive interactions, period prior to study enrollment, and period post training during regular care follow-up.
