Professional Development

Managing Tuberculosis Infections in Primary Care

Have you ever had a patient screen positive for a tuberculosis infection (TBI), previously known as latent tuberculosis infection, and did not have a treatment plan for managing your patient’s TBI?

With the Atlantic provinces increasing their population through immigration, of which 68% are from TB endemic areas, the infectious diseases department in Saint John is sponsoring a continuing professional development and medical education (CPDME) event in collaboration with family physicians and public health in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

This one-day CPDME event provides primary care providers from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island, with an overview of TBI, and a proactive approach to providing screening and preventative treatment to patients diagnosed with TBI. As well, this event provides a discussion of the cascade of care that is involved in treating patients diagnosed with TBI in your jurisdiction.

Target audience : primary care providers, nurses, and medical and nursing learners

Online: MS Teams
