Practice guidelines for the treatment of tuberculosis

Author(s)GUIDELINES FROM THE INFECTIOUS DISEASES SOCIETY OF AMERICA
Abstract The Tuberculosis Committee of the Infectious Disease Society of America, in conjunction with the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has identified 10 essential recommendations and performance indicators for tuberculosis (TB) care. These include recommendations for treatment of active TB disease and latent TB infection. All 10 of the recommendations are graded "A" (strongly recommended) by the Infectious Disease Society of AmericaUS Public Health Service ranking system. The associated performance indicators are easily measurable and will allow straightforward assessment of the adequacy of TB treatment practices by care providers and organizations.

Please note that these guidelines are developed for use in the US and that practice in the UK may differ.
