Health-care worker (HCW) education and training on TB infection and disease is an essential part of a TB infection control program.  Education and training should emphasize the increased risks posed by an undiagnosed person with TB disease in a health-care setting and the specific measures to reduce this risk. Health-care settings should document that all HCWs, including physicians, have received training relevant to their work setting. Resources for TB education and training can be found on the following websites:

 

CDC TB website (www.cdc.gov/tb);

Find TB Resources website (https://findtbresources.cdc.gov/); and

Regional Training and Medical Consultation Centers’ TB Training and Education Products website (https://sntc.medicine.ufl.edu/rtmccproducts.aspx).
