Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are ubiquitous in our environment. The clinical manifestations include but are not limited to chronic pulmonary infection, lymphadenitis, disseminated disease or skin and soft tissue infection. As we watch the incidence of tuberculosis drop to historically low numbers, the rates of infection due to NTM are increasing.
These infections are under recognized and cause significant morbidity and mortality. Treatment options are arduous but with the right tools, patients will improve clinically. We will have experts from across the country here to discuss this growing medical challenge. Come join us for an invaluable educational experience.
National Jewish Health has a 120-year history as the leading respiratory hospital in the nation and is the only hospital devoted fully to the treatment of respiratory and related illnesses.
Family physicians and internal medicine physicians, along with pulmonologists, infectious disease physicians, physician assistants, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, and other health care professionals who diagnose and treat patients with Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM).
Please let your patients know about the NTM Lecture Series for Patients and Families on Saturday, September 12, 2020. For information about this event, go to njhealth.org/2020NTMPatients or email Lauren Rieck at email@example.com for more information.
Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be better able to:
Recognize the incidence and distribution of NTM disease.
Identify the clinical manifestations of NTM disease.
Identify and differentiate the various types of NTM infections.
Describe the guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of NTM infections.
The agenda will be posted here soon.
