Coda begins where SMACC ends. Find us on

Jonathan and his wife Anna thought they were coming to the emergency department for a routine sickle cell pain crisis, but his illness takes him down an unexpected spiral of multi-system organ failure and critical illness. What was a routine patient encounter becomes a much more personal human interaction that causes the provider to question her perspective on chronically painful conditions and realize the effect our words and subtle actions have on our patients.
