    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 factors that determine the infectiousness (contagiousness) of a person with TB disease. This will help you and others decide whether a particular patient should be considered infectious. You will also learn about the precautions you should take if you come in contact with patients who are considered infectious to prevent the spread of TB in health care settings and communities. These precautions, or measures, are part of a TB infection-control program that each health care setting should develop to minimize the risk for transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
