healthcare provider TB Testing
The CDC recently released updated tuberculosis testing guidelines for healthcare providers (HCPs) in the US.
Join Dr. Masae Kawamura as she introduces the new national testing guidelines, the scientific rationale for change, and their implications for healthcare facilities and occupational health programs. She will also share the new evidence and advantages of QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus (QFT-Plus) in HCP testing, in the context of the new guidelines and companion document. QFT-Plus is the most trusted test for HCP testing and most used IGRA in the US for risk-based testing and active TB contact investigations – which together form the backbone of the US TB prevention policies.
