COMMUNICATIONS, EDUCATION, AND BEHAVIORAL STUDIES BRANCH UPDATE

New Additions to www.findtbresources.org

The TB Training and Education Resources Website has continued to grow and expand since its creation in 2003. Two new webpages have been added to the site, the Behavioral and Social Science Resources page and the Tips for Adapting Tuberculosis Materials page. Moreover, the number of resources listed on the website and the number of visitors to the site continue to grow.

Behavioral and Social Science Resources

Find TB resources web siteThe Behavioral and Social Science Resources page was added in September 2006. This page includes useful links to TB behavioral and social science resources, descriptions of research studies, a literature database, and research tools, surveys, and guides. Also found on this page is the TB ETN Cultural Competency Resource Guide. This guide includes a list of organizations, readings, and assessment tools associated with cultural competence and health. Additionally on this page, one can sign up for the TB Behavioral and Social Sciences electronic mailing list, a forum for exchanging information related to TB behavioral and social science issues.

Tips for Adapting Tuberculosis Materials

Another new addition to the website is the Tips for Adapting Tuberculosis Materials page. This page contains tips and resources to consider when evaluating and adapting education and training materials.

Marketing Efforts

Each month, we continue to send out an E-Newsletter to thousands of subscribers. The purpose of this monthly newsletter is to inform readers about the Highlight of the Month, additional helpful resources in the database, and other updates to the website. There are two ways to receive the TB Education and Training Resources E-newsletter: join the TB Educate electronic mailing list or join the TB Education and Training Network.

Join the TB-Educate Electronic Mailing List

Subscribers of the TB-Educate electronic mailing list automatically receive the TB Education and Training Resources E-newsletter on the first day of each month. In addition to receiving the e-newsletter, subscribers can ask questions, share comments, and exchange information about TB education and training issues. To subscribe, go to the TB-Educate electronic mailing list on the NPIN Website, where you will find complete sign-up information.

Join the TB Education and Training Network

The TB Education and Training Network (TB ETN) brings TB professionals together to share resources and training skills. The TB Education and Training Resources E-newsletter is sent out to TB ETN members on the first day of each month. For a registration form and additional information go to the TB ETN website.

Marketing efforts, such as the E-Newsletter, help boost recognition and visits to the website. Information and materials on the TB Training and Education Resources website were displayed at the 2006 Health Education Day at CDC and the 2006 TB Program Managers Course, as well as at the 2006 Union World Conference on Lung Health in Paris, France, and the 2007 IUATLD North American Region meeting in Vancouver, Canada.

New materials and resources are constantly being added to the website. There are approximately 2,000 records in the database. Visitors to the website are invited to share their organization's TB-related education and training materials. Thanks to marketing efforts and the abundance of materials on the website, the website receives visitors from all around the world.

Several new expansions and revisions are planned for the website in the coming months. Please continue to visit and utilize the TB Training and Education Resources website!
