Control Program Manual
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.
