Everything You Wanted to Know About Tuberculosis Testing for Home Care Workers - 60 minutes Tuberculosis testing and accurately assessing test results is essential for home care providers that employ large numbers of workers from diverse foreign and domestic backgrounds. There is often confusion about how to read a tuberculosis skin test, when to order and repeat chest x-rays, and when to perform the tuberculosis screening questionnaire. At times, workers are subjected to unnecessary PPDs and x-ray testing.
This webinar will provide an overview of New York State guidelines for tuberculosis testing for home care and other health care workers. Attendees will become knowledgeable about standard tuberculosis skin testing, the tuberculosis screening questionnaire and the blood assay for tuberculosis testing, the QFT. Attendees will gain an understanding about chest x-ray requirements, and the protocol to follow for positive TB screening results.
