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. During the live virtual program, we had experts from across the country here to discuss this growing medical challenge.
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).
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.
