Home Interview during a Contact Investigation

Greetings!

Welcome to this month's e-newsletter for the Find TB 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 an interactive web-based case study, Home Interview during a Contact Investigation of a Nonnative-born Person with Tuberculosis (TB). The case study was developed by faculty from the School of Nursing at the University of Washington, in consultation with the Washington State TB Program Manager, with a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration. The purpose of this case study is to engage students in the process of conducting a home interview for a nonnative-born male with active TB disease. Students will follow a public health nurse's steps, watch brief portions of an in-home interview, and answer questions.
