The Illinois Chapter of the American Lung Association will use the Tuberculosis (TB) Education and Training Support Grant to assist the Illinois Department of Public Health TB Control Program (Program) with conducting necessary education and training for practitioners, including nurses, physicians, laboratorians, infection control practitioners, and public health professionals who are responsible for the control, prevention, and elimination of TB in Illinois. The Program develops education and training plans as part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) TB Cooperative Agreement Grant which details many education/training activities and strategies intended to improve the TB knowledge of local TB programs and other public health professions. The 2016 Tuberculosis Education and Training Support Grant expands on the role of the ALA to include enhanced support for TB education and training, compared to the 2015 grant. For example, the 2016 TETS grant will include support for web-based TB training and education capacity. Enhancements to the role of ALA will include development and implementation of the TB 101, facilitation and management of video directly observed therapy (DOT), and assistance in educational efforts to specific population with high risk of developing TB disease.
