Diagnosis and Treatment of Latent Tuberculosis Infection: The “How To” for Primary Care Providers in NJ

New Jersey remains a state with a high incidence of TB cases and with an estimated high rate of persons infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. With the decline in public health funding for TB prevention and control, it is imperative that a collaborative approach between community providers and health departments occur to detect and treat TB infection and disease in the community.

This recording of a live, web-based seminar which occurred on December 11, 2008, covers the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of latent TB infection, and describes the opportunity for collaboration with the State health department in the management of patients for TB infection. The audience for this seminar includes primary care providers, particularly those at federally qualified health centers.
