California Tuberculosis Risk Assessment: New Tool
February 5, 2016
Curry International TB Center (CITC) is pleased to announce the release of the California Tuberculosis Risk Assessment tool and an accompanying Fact Sheet that answers many anticipated questions on using this tool. This product was jointly developed by the Tuberculosis Control Branch at the California Department of Public Health and the California Tuberculosis Controllers Association. The tool is designed to help clinicians select adults for LTBI testing who are at high-risk for TB exposure or progression to TB disease. Extensive feedback received during the development of the product made it clear that it must be SIMPLE if TB risk assessment, LTBI testing and treatment are to become routine for busy primary care providers.
