    Self-study modules on tuberculosis
  • Corporate Authors:
  • 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.

    This module discusses patient rights and general recommendations for developing trust and maintaining confidentiality in the context of TB control.

    Health care workers need to be aware of the importance of confidentiality issues involving patient-health care worker encounters, as well as to the collection, management, and sharing of TB patient data and information. In the treatment of TB disease and latent TB infection (LTBI), the relationship between the patient and the health care worker is extremely important. If patient information is disclosed to unauthorized persons without the patient’s permission, the patient may be stigmatized or experience rejection from family and friends, lose a job, or be evicted from housing. Moreover, the health care worker may lose the trust of the patient. Therefore, confidentiality— the protection of a patient’s private information— is critical in TB control. By using the recommendations in this module, you should be able to protect the patient’s rights and their confidentiality and help the TB program fulfill its responsibilities to the public.
