What are behind the gaps in latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI)/tuberculosis (TB) prevention and what can health centers and other organizations do to support Asian, Asian American, (A/AA), Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (NH/PI) patients with LTBI?

Join AAPCHO to gain in-depth knowledge and best practices on how to empower patients at health centers through strategies that effectively address LTBI/TB prevention and quality improvement approaches in A/AA and NH/PI communities.

This webinar session will highlight provider and patient resources for clinical monitoring of patients during LTBI treatment.

Please note that this public webinar is a part of the 2023 “Quality Improvement Strategies for LTBI Screening, Testing, and Treatment in A/AA- and NH/PI- Serving Health Centers: National Clinical Quality Measure Development – Providing Care for Patients with LTBI” Learning Collaborative.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of tuberculosis prevention and its contribution to overall goals of TB elimination;
  • Describe easy-to-use tools and other resources to engage and encourage patients during LTBI treatment to improve care cascade outcomes;
  • Identify how to measure the steps in the LTBI care cascade to advocate and reduce preventable losses in the cascade to improve program performance; and
  • Identify strategies to overcome barriers to each step in the LTBI care cascade to successfully implement and improve patient diagnosis and treatment.
