Curry International Tuberculosis Center
On-Demand Webinar Program
The On-Demand Webinar program is an effort to target timely tuberculosis (TB) in-service training to healthcare workers within in TB control programs or in other medical settings where TB or latent TB infection (LTBI) is diagnosed and treated.
This training format will deliver brief, targeted sessions that can fit into lunch hour or staff meeting time frames. Each live webinar will be 30-45 minutes in length. The topic area and date/time for training will be suggested by the jurisdiction submitting the application and, once approved, the faculty, final date/time, and learning objectives, etc. will be developed by CITC in partnership with the applicant. Requesting agencies will be informed of their application status no later than 4 weeks prior to the final date of the webinar. Topics requested on this application should reflect current, specific challenges that the program is facing which can be addressed by an expert(s) in the field during a focused, interactive session. There will be time for questions and answers at the end of the live web-based presentation. We are now accepting applications from jurisdictions within the western region for 2015.
No continuing education units will be available for this program.
