TB Intensive Workshop

April 23-26, 2013

225 Warren Street, 1st Floor

Newark, New Jersey

CNE/CME Certified ACTIVITY

Sponsored By

New Jersey Medical School Global Tuberculosis Institute and
UMDNJ-Center for Continuing and Outreach Education

This activity is supported in part by an educational grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of Tuberculosis Elimination

The New Jersey Medical School Global Tuberculosis Institute is the Tuberculosis Regional Training and Medical Consultation Center for the Northeast United States

COURSE DESCRIPTION & OVERALL GOAL

The purpose of this training is to provide clinicians with comprehensive information on the management and treatment of TB. Topics will include epidemiology, transmission & pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of TB, TB in children and adolescents, multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, TB/HIV co-infection, surgical treatment of TB, infection control, and key aspects of patient management.  The format includes lectures, discussions, small group work, and case studies.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This workshop is designed for physicians, nurses and healthcare professionals who are involved in the diagnosis and management of TB patients. Individuals who work in the following settings would benefit from attending this workshop:

  • Immigrant & Refugee Health
  • Community Health Settings
  • College or University Health Services
  • Long Term Care Facilities
  • TB Programs
  • Health Departments
  • Hospital Infection Control                      
  • Correctional Facilities

WHY COURSE IS NEEDED
As the incidence of tuberculosis continues to decline, maintaining clinical and public health expertise in TB is particularly challenging. Therefore, ongoing training and education are important for healthcare providers so they can develop and enhance skills in the diagnosis of TB, follow recommended treatment guidelines, and interact effectively with public health agencies. This type of training is also important for new clinicians working in TB control or other settings.

OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Interpret epidemiology trends of TB to better screen and treat groups that are at high risk for TB
  • Apply current advances for assessing risk, testing and treating latent TB infection to prevent development of disease
  • Apply recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of TB disease to prevent transmission and primary drug resistance
  • Describe approaches for managing adverse drug effects to anti-TB medications to minimize toxicity and ensure completion of therapy
  • Discuss the principles for managing patients with drug resistant TB disease to achieve successful outcomes
  • Utilize current recommendations for the prevention and management of TB in children and adolescents
  • Develop individualized approaches to promote adherence in patients taking TB medications
  • Coordinate care for TB and HIV-infection to provide accurate diagnosis, integrate treatment and effectively manage co-infected patients
  • Implement appropriate infection control measures along the continuum of care to prevent transmission and future cases of TB
  • Describe strategies for providing TB care that is patient-centered and culturally sensitive


COURSE REQUIREMENTS

This course will build upon the basic concepts outlined in the CDC’s Core Curriculum on Tuberculosis: What the Clinician Should Know (Available at: http://www.cdc.gov/tb/education/corecurr/default.htm). Therefore, it is recommended that participants review this self study guide prior to the course to increase baseline knowledge of TB. In order to meet the learning objectives and receive continuing education credits, participants are required to attend the entire course, and complete an evaluation form. A post-course follow up evaluation will be sent within 2 months of the course.
