The Denver TB Course (4-day course) (More Info)
Description: Since the introduction of effective chemotherapy, many changes have come about in the management of tuberculosis. Most important have been the shift from sanatoria based to general hospital and clinic based treatment and the knowledge that active disease can reliably be prevented among those who are latently infected. With the development of effective drugs for TB, with the significant advances in bacteriology, and with increased knowledge about the treatment of latent TB infection, the approach to tuberculosis control has become increasingly sophisticated. The purpose of this course is to present this body of knowledge to general internists, public health workers, infectious diseases and chest specialists, registered nurses and other healthcare providers who will be responsible for the management and care of tuberculosis.
