The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Tuberculosis Controllers Association released updated recommendations for TB screening, testing, and treatment of healthcare personnel on May 17, 2019. C4UHC asks that you share this valuable update from the CDC with your associated hospitals and facilities so that the TB credentialing requirement is aligned to CDC guidance in all appropriate locations.
We all appreciate the tremendous risk and workload COVID-19 has placed on healthcare personnel. Given the new TB guidance, fulfilling an annual TB requirement is one item that should be taken off their plates. Links to CDC references are included below.
