Overview

Assessment of Needs

This webinar will review the landscape of tuberculosis (TB) and HIV coinfection across the disease spectrum, from latent infection to drug-susceptible and drug-resistant disease. Recent advances include TB preventive therapy for 1 month, which is safe and effective, and a 4-month regimen, after 40 years of a 6-month treatment for drug-susceptible disease, has proved successful. Equally important, more effective and tolerable shorter course regimens for highly drug-resistant TB have been identified.

Learning Objectives

On completion of this webinar, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the current epidemiology of tuberculosis with an emphasis on HIV coinfection
  • Identify which patients should be offered TB preventive therapy
  • Described recent advances in shorter regimens for TB prevention
  • Identify the optimal regimen for treatment of drug-susceptible TB in patients with HIV infection
  • Described recent advances in treatment of patients with drug-resistant TB
