TB Training Roadmap-Hospitals & Nursing Homes
Description: The Core Curriculum is intended for use as a self-study guide or reference manual for clinicians and other public health professionals caring for people with or at high risk for TB disease or infection. In addition, the Core Curriculum includes a slide set designed to be useful in developing educational programs.
Description: These guidelines have been expanded to address a broader concept; health-care–associated settings go beyond the previously defined facilities. The term "health-care setting" includes many types, such as inpatient settings, outpatient settings, TB clinics, settings in correctional facilities in which health care is delivered, settings in which home-based health-care and emergency medical services are provided, and laboratories handling clinical specimens that might contain M. tuberculosis.
Format: MMWR Guidelines
Organization: Curry International Tuberculosis Center (CITC)
Description: This manual provides information about the guidelines and regulations pertaining to TB infection control, methods of reducing the risk of TB infection, and facility-specific guidelines for reducing the risk and dealing with potential exposure.
