Abstract

The Latent TB Infection (LTBI) Treatment Fact Sheet Series is designed to complement patient education delivered by healthcare professionals. For each of the three CDC-recommended LTBI regimens, there is a fact sheet in the series that can be personalized for individual patients. Each sheet provides patients with a written reminder of their treatment regimen, medication side effects, actions to take if side effects do occur, tips to help remain adherent to the medication, and instructions in the event a dose of medication is missed.
