  • Description:
    Background -- Objectives -- New Terms -- History of TB -- Transmission -- Pathogenesis -- Additional Resources -- Answers to Study -- Case Study Answers.

    In this module, you will learn about the history of tuberculosis (TB). You will also learn how TB is spread from person to person (transmission) and how TB disease develops in the body (pathogenesis). Our understanding of the transmission and pathogenesis of TB has guided us in developing strategies for controlling the spread of TB and for treating latent TB infection (LTBI) and TB disease. As a public health worker, you should understand these concepts so that you can educate the patients you serve.

    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.
