Online - Disclosure Statement
Feb 5, 12, 19, 26
The goal of this course is to provide an introductory training experience covering basic elements, knowledge and skills essential for the registered nurse or LVN/LPN responsible for the care of patients with active TB disease and their contacts. The course will provide new nurses with the foundation necessary to attend Heartland's TB Nurse Case Management course. Participants must complete the CDC Self Study Modules 1-9 and present a Certificate of Completion prior to the first session.
This conference is designed for community providers who will be screening and treating patients for tuberculosis infection in the community.
The pre-conference medical forum is a workshop hosted the evening prior to the 2019 Southeast Texas World TB Day Conference. Physicians will receive instruction from subject-matter expert providers on the topics of Tuberculosis and Ethics. Examples of presentation topics are "Latest Recommendations for Treatment of TB Infection" and "Ethical Considerations for Persons with TB." Additionally, physicians will have the opportunity to meet with expert presenters and ask questions of local health departments, for the purpose of receiving guidance on disease surveillance and reporting.
The conference is a joint effort between three TB programs from state, county and city health departments. This conference will offer real-world, clinical evidence to a diverse audience including physicians, mid-level providers, nurses, epidemiologists, public health and infectious disease specialists and other health care providers who are responsible for the management, reporting and care of patients with tuberculosis.
