TB Communication for Contact Investigations in Workplaces and Congregate Settings

Communicating easy-to-understand information about TB infection and disease, and how a contact investigation will be conducted, is key to successfully investigating a possible exposure in a group setting. Many TB control staff are accustomed to doing this with patients and their families, one-on-one. However, in a workplace or congregate setting there are many more players – the process can become complicated if not managed well. This web-based conference for TB control staff covered effective TB communication as part of the investigation of a possible TB exposure in a workplace or congregate setting.
