Please join CDC for updates on the ongoing investigation of tuberculosis (TB) affecting patients who had spinal surgery involving a contaminated bone graft product, in-depth information about potential exposures to healthcare personnel and other patients, preliminary findings related to conversions, and how health departments and healthcare facilities can support CDC’s investigation of healthcare personnel and patient contacts.
• Healthcare exposures: perspective of a hospital infection preventionist
• Healthcare contact investigation and preliminary findings of conversions
• Review of recommendations for risk assessment and contact investigation
• Sample data collection tools for health departments and healthcare facilities
This is an opportunity for health departments, healthcare infection preventionists, occupational health programs, and TB care providers to learn about how to protect healthcare personnel and patients, hear preliminary findings related to conversions in healthcare personnel, and discuss infection control and contact investigations in their healthcare facilities. Slides will be distributed after the session. This session will not be recorded.
