    • Description:
      The Self-Study Modules on Tuberculosis are a series of educational modules designed to provide information about TB in a self-study format. The series consists of a total of nine modules that are separated into two courses. The first course, Modules 1-5, provides basic information on TB. The second course, Modules 6-9, provides more specific TB programmatic information.

      In this module, you will learn about the principles of treating latent TB infection (LTBI) and TB disease. A person with LTBI is treated to prevent them from progressing to TB disease. Some people with LTBI are at very high risk of developing TB disease, and they should receive high priority for LTBI treatment. TB disease is treated to cure the patient and to stop the spread of TB. As a health care worker, you may be responsible for helping TB patients take their medications as prescribed. This is very important because patients with TB disease who do not complete treatment as prescribed may become infectious or develop drug-resistant TB; patients with LTBI who do not complete treatment as prescribed can unnecessarily develop TB disease.

      This module also explains the possible side effects of the drugs used to treat LTBI and TB disease. If you have regular contact with TB patients, you should be aware of the signs and symptoms of these side effects. If a patient has symptoms of a serious side effect, you should notify a clinician immediately.
