Nice | Tuberculosis (TB)

Nice | Tuberculosis (TB)

This is an updated guideline from NICE on managing tuberculosis. I guess the relevance will be largely related to where you work. There isn’t any really big change here, but there are lots of things that I wasn’t aware of, so I will do a general summary of the guideline. There is a lot more detail in the guideline itself to refer to if needed – I have just given a broad-brush overview.

Definitions

There are a lot of definitions in this guideline that you need to understand for it to make any sense.

High Incidence Countries – any country with an incidence of tuberculosis over 40 per 100,000 per year. A list of high incidence countries can be found on the government’s website.
