Abstract: The guide, based on nursing and drug-resistant TB literature, establishes best practice nursing assessment and intervention guidance. The content was created to act as a reference and job aid for nurses to: 1.Identify symptoms that may indicate a side effect related to DR-TB treatment or antiretroviral medication; 2.Assess for severity as well as other potential contributors; and 3.Intervene appropriately in order to minimize patient discomfort, reduce side effect progression, and ultimately support successful treatment completion.

The information has been field tested by over 200 nurses in 11 countries.
