Addressing Latent Tuberculosis Infection Treatment Through a Collaborative Care Model With Community Pharmacies and a Health Department


Of patients assessed, 102 had LTBI. A total of 24 were excluded: 11 were treated previously; 4 were pregnant; 8 had contraindications, allergies, or unacceptable drug interactions; and 1 was unable to start treatment because of a move out of the state. Twenty-six patients declined to participate and received treatment through the local health department; 41 consented to participate. Eleven patients refused treatment, 1 never started treatment, and 40 initiated treatment at the pharmacy and were included in this study.
