This 90-minute webinar was created for physicians, nurses, and other health professionals who treat and case manage patients with active TB. The webinar introduced the 2016 Official American Thoracic Society/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Infectious Diseases Society of America Clinical Practice Guidelines: Treatment of Drug-Susceptible Tuberculosis. This training highlighted the guidelines development process, the key changes in recommendations, and discussed the evidence supporting the changes. The webinar was originally presented on November 4, 2016. This training was jointly sponsored by all 5 RTMCCs.

This was by far one of the BEST presentations on TB-related topics I have ever had the opportunity in which to participate.
After it was over, the nurses I work with and I sat together and discussed the information we had learned. We also discussed how we could apply the information to our patients. Excellent training!
The presentations are well-structured; interaction between presenters is helpful and engaging. The cases as a whole present a helpful range of situations encountered in diagnosing TB. As a non-clinician, I found it interesting and engaging, too.
I particularly like the interaction between the three presenters during each presentation. It is good to have the other doctors’ thoughts and opinions during each of the presentations.
If it is archived and available, I will probably listen again. Excellent material and so very applicable.
Webpage includes video and audio recording and printed transcript. Print-outs of slides, three to a page, make taking notes easy.
