Find TB Resources Newsletter June 2019

Welcome to the newsletter for the Find TB Resources Website.

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 features Resources for TB Screening and Testing of Health Care Personnel, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). On May 17, 2019, the CDC and the National Tuberculosis Controllers Association (NTCA) released “Tuberculosis Screening, Testing, and Treatment of U.S. Health Care Personnel: Recommendations from the National Tuberculosis Controllers Association and CDC, 2019." The updated recommendations reflect the overall decrease of TB cases and the low incidence of TB among health care personnel in the United States due to occupational exposure.

CDC developed supporting resources and tools, including:

  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Baseline Individual TB Risk Assessment
  • Infographic: Updated Recommendations for Tuberculosis TB - Screening, Testing, and Treatment
  • Social Media Graphics
