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.

Tuberculosis Center at (973) 972-0979 or access the Web site at
