COURSE DESCRIPTION & OVERALL GOAL
This virtual meeting provides an opportunity for TB Nurse Consultants from the Northeast United States to meet with their state counterparts, receive updates on current topics in TB, and discuss challenges in the diagnosis and management of TB patients. Consultants from the region will also share clinical experiences and discuss strategies for best practices with input from colleagues.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This meeting is by invitation to the designated TB nurse consultant(s) within each TB program in the Northeastern region.
WHY COURSE IS NEEDED
Ongoing training and education is important for nurses to remain updated on the latest advances in TB diagnosis, treatment, and patient management. This educational activity will provide an opportunity for TB nurse consultants to network with colleagues, share successes and challenges that impact TB care, and learn new strategies for training and education.
Upon completion of this meeting, participants should be better able to:
• Outline approaches for addressing challenges in the management of TB in special situations.
• Apply the elements and activities of the TB case management process to provide patient-centered TB care
• Develop strategies for effective cross-cultural communication and TB patient care.
• Connect with colleagues in the region to improve individual TB program consultations and training for new nurses.
In order to meet the learning objectives and receive continuing education credits, participants are required to attend the entire meeting and complete an evaluation. Participants will be asked to complete a follow-up evaluation within 1-2 months.
