How to take your TB medicine

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page handout uses text and illustrations to provide an easy to follow treatment guide for people with latent tuberculosis (TB) infection. It includes blank spaces where the patient and health care provider can write down information at the beginning of TB treatment, which can be reviewed and referenced during follow-up visits. The document can be used to instruct the patient when to take their medicine, how many pills to take and for how long, if they should be taken with food, what the patient should do if they experience side effects, and their doctor's contact information.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) Division of Global Populations and Infectious Disease field-tested this health information material with refugees and immigrants.
