TB Control Program Manual

Tuberculosis Program Manual UPDATED 2008!
This manual describes policies, protocols, and recommendations for the State of Utah. The protocols cover common as well as complex clinical issues that arise in the control of tuberculosis (TB). These protocols are based on recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Thoracic Society (ATS), and the opinions of local and national experts in TB diagnosis, treatment, and control. Although an attempt has been made to design a comprehensive manual, protocols cannot and should not substitute for clinical judgment. For most clients however, strict adherence to clinical protocols will result in improved care and the control of TB. Clinicians are strongly encouraged to seek consultation for issues related to individual cases that may not be fully discussed here.
