Welcome to this interactive resource for best practice for care of patients with Tuberculosis (TB). This resource was developed from the training materials developed by the International Council of Nurses as part of the ICN TB/MDR-TB Project. It aims to offer practical tools to nurses and anyone else involved in caring for patients, families and communities affected by TB including drug-resistant TB. It recognizes the challenges faced in providing good quality care when resources are scarce and the workload is high. The underlying assumption is that by improving the quality of patient care we will be able to reduce the impact of TB and the emergence of drug-resistance.
The course follows the patient-centred approach set out in “Best Practice for the Care of Patients with Tuberculosis – a Guide for Low Income Countries” and is in line with the ITSC, the Patient’s Charter, the StopTB Strategy and Guidelines on the Programmatic Management of Drug Resistant TB
