Keep taking your TB medicine

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page handout uses text and illustrations to provide a treatment regimen 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 promote treatment adherence by reminding the patient of the date and time of their next visit, and where to get more medicine. It provides a checklist of strategies to help them remember to take their TB medicine.

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