Since the introduction of effective chemotherapy, many changes have come about in the management of tuberculosis (TB). Most important have been the shift from sanatoria-based to general hospital and clinic-based treatment and the knowledge that active disease can reliably be prevented among those who are latently infected. With the development of effective drugs for TB, the significant advances in bacteriology, and increased knowledge about the treatment of latent TB infection, the approach to tuberculosis control has become increasingly sophisticated.
The 57th Annual Denver TB Course (Online Series) provides a broad overview of active and latent TB including its epidemiology, transmission, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and management. The purpose of this course is to present this body of knowledge to general internists, epidemiologists, preventative medicine, public health, infectious disease and chest specialists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and other health care providers who will be responsible for the management and care of patients with tuberculosis.
Epidemiology of tuberculosis
Transmission and pathogenesis
Diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis including MDR/XDR-TB
Diagnosis and treatment of latent tuberculosis infection
Emphasis on vulnerable populations such as pediatric and HIV co-infection
Interactive Contact Investigation Workshop
Discuss the epidemiological features which are associated with increased risk for tuberculosis.
Explain the clinical manifestations of tuberculosis and how they differ in unique patient populations such as pediatrics or HIV co-infection.
Recognize the tools available for diagnosis of tuberculosis and their differences, advantages, and possible shortcomings.
Formulate a treatment regimen for a patient with drug susceptible or drug resistant tuberculosis while understanding the pharmacokinetics and potential toxicities of that regimen.
Discuss the importance and performance of contact investigation among persons exposed to new cases of communicable TB.
The 57th Annual TB Course followed a new format in 2021 with weekly virtual presentations being led by expert faculty from April 2 – May 7, 2021. All recorded sessions are now available for purchase and CME/CNE credit through October 31, 2021.
