Training in Prevention Effectiveness Methods | Urine Test Strips for INH Metabolism

Training in Prevention Effectiveness Methods for State and Local TB Prevention and Control Programs

During FY 2000, the Prevention Effectiveness Section (PES) of DTBE’s Research and Evaluation Branch will be conducting a series of training courses for state and local TB program staff, which will focus on decision/economic analyses and behavioral/social research techniques. Based on responses to a needs assessment distributed to state/big city TB programs in late spring, PES staff are in the process of determining the most appropriate topics, formats, and venues for the courses. Please look for prevention effectiveness training announcements in future issues of TB Notes and in your mailbox!

The PES staff would like to extend a warm "thank you" to all who responded to the needs assessment, and a hearty "congratulations" to the winners of a copy of the book Prevention Effectiveness: A Guide to Decision Analysis and Economic Evaluation—Alex Bowler of Cheyenne, WY; Kathleen Gensheimer of Augusta, ME; John Grabau of Albany, NY; Sue Anne Jenkerson of Anchorage, AK; and Robert Stroube of Richmond, VA. If you would like more information about this training opportunity, please feel free to contact Drs. Noreen Qualls or Zachary Taylor at (404) 639-8123.
