Education and Training Products Available from the New Jersey Medical School National Tuberculosis Center

The New Jersey Medical School National Tuberculosis Center (NJMS NTBC) has developed two new materials for health department TB program workers and health care providers in the community.

Treating the Patient with Tuberculosis: Guidelines for Collaborating with Community Physicians

This handbook is designed for use by state and local health department personnel working in TB control programs. It contains templates for forms and letters to facilitate communication between the public and private sector. A narrative section that offers tips and suggestions for the use of the forms precedes each template.

Because regulations and resources vary from state to state, the templates have been designed so that they can be easily adapted, personalized, and printed on agency letterhead. A CD-ROM that contains a pdf version of the handbook and templates in MS Word format is enclosed with each handbook. In addition, this product can be easily downloaded from the NJMS NTBC Web site.

Management of Latent Tuberculosis Infection in Children and Adolescents: A Guide for the Primary Care Provider

This document in handbook format is designed to provide pediatric primary care providers with an overview of the most current LTBI recommendations and offer suggestions for achieving the best patient outcome. Targeted skin testing and guidelines for administering and interpreting the tuberculin skin test are provided as well as guidelines for the medical management of LTBI in children.

A wall chart for quick reference accompanies the handbook. It summarizes key points regarding tuberculin skin testing and treatment in the pediatric population. The handbook is also available on the NJMS NTBC Web site.
