Course Description

Tuberculosis in the Healthcare Environment

At one time, doctors thought they had almost stamped out tuberculosis as a serious health concern in the U.S., but the disease had an alarming resurgence in the 1980s. It is currently one of the most common infectious diseases in the world, and kills more than a million people every year.

Healthcare employees are on the front lines in the fight against TB. They also have a significant risk of exposure to the disease.
