Best Practices in TB Control #2: Enhancing Supportive Social Services for TB Patients

TB surveillance data indicate that the many TB patients include foreign born, homeless, substance abusers, refugees, migrants, and HIV-infected persons. Peer-reviewed literature and best practices have indicated that the inclusion of social support services in the care of these patients enhances treatment adherence and outcomes. This web-based seminar will cover resources that can be utilized to assist at-risk TB patients. We will do this through a multiple layer approach that looks at TB patients as individuals as well as how practitioners can enhance service through system-wide interventions, and through program collaborations.
