TB Education & Training Resources Website E-Newsletter
November 2006

Greetings!

Welcome to this month's e-newsletter for the TB Education & Training Resources Website (findtbresources.cdc.gov). The purpose of this monthly newsletter is to inform you about the featured Highlight of the Month, additional helpful resources in the database, and other updates to the website.

Highlight of the Month

This month's highlight is Strengthening the Teaching of Tuberculosis Control in Basic Training Programmes - a Manual for Instructors of Nurses and Other Health Care Workers, developed by the World Health Organization (WHO). The manual is based on WHO's Management of Tuberculosis: Training for Health Facility Staff modules. This manual illustrates how the modules can be adapted for use by basic training programmes to provide a standard curriculum on TB control based on the DOTS strategy.
