NAR Postgraduate Course

The CDC TB Centers of Excellence for Training, Education, and Medical Consultation post graduate course was held on February 24, 2021. The course explored the dynamic and essential role of the laboratory in the diagnosis and management of persons with tuberculosis with the main goal of providing an overview of the expanding toolbox available to TB focused laboratories and how to apply results in the clinical setting. Illustrative case examples delve into available testing methods, highlight challenges in test interpretation and clinical application, and emphasize the importance of communication between the clinician and laboratorian as part of a collaborative approach.
