Course Content Example 1:

What is Tuberculosis (TB)?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines Tuberculosis (TB) to be "a contagious and potentially life-threatening disease caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium Tuberculosis."

TB is spread from person to person through the air.

Course Content Example 2:

TB Infection

  • Once infected, people’s immune systems become involvedImmune system may be able to contain the infection, but not able to eliminate the infection without help from anti-TB drugs
  • These people have latent TB infection (LTBI) and remain infected until corrective treatment is completed
  • LTBI does not cause symptoms and is not contagious
  • Without treatment, infected people can lose control of infection and develop active clinical disease
  • People with active TB have symptoms and can spread disease

Course Content Example 3:

Risk of Active TB

Risk of developing Active TB is greatest in first five years after infection, but some risk remains throughout life.

TB is preventable and mostly treatable. Prevention of transmission and further spread of TB in the health care settings can be managed through the use of infection control practices.
