  • Description:
    Background -- Objectives -- New Terms --- Infectiousness -- Infection Control -- Additional Resources -- Answers to Study -- Case Study Answers.

    In this module, you will learn about the factors that determine the infectiousness 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.

    Note: The Self-Study Modules on Tuberculosis are a series of educational modules designed to provide information about TB in a self-study format. The target audiences include outreach workers, nurses, physicians, administrators, health educators, and students from a variety of settings. The Modules should not be used as a substitute for guidelines and should not be used for patient care decisions.
