LTBI Program Implementation in a Substance Abuse Treatment Facility: A Case Study
The New Jersey Medical School National Tuberculosis Center collaborated with a substance abuse treatment facility in northern New Jersey, the local health department (HD), and the state HD to develop and implement a plan to more efficiently carry out an on-site TB testing and treatment of LTBI program in an otherwise difficult-to-reach high risk population. This product documents our experience in conducting a detailed needs assessment, revising followup TB evaluation and treatment procedures, and developing an evaluation plan. The results after 6 months are presented, along with a list of keys to success.
