Nursing Guide for Managing Side Effects to Drug-resistant TB Treatment Thumbnail Nursing Guide for Managing Side Effects to Drug-resistant TB Treatment is a collaborative project between CITC and the International Council of Nurses (ICN). The guide was developed by nurses with experience in the clinical care and programmatic management of tuberculosis (TB) and drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) in both high- and low-resource settings. The guide is designed as a reference and job aid, so nurses can quickly: Identify symptoms that may indicate a side effect related to DR-TB treatment or antiretroviral medication; Assess for severity as well as other potential contributors; and Intervene appropriately in order to minimize patient discomfort, reduce side effect progression, and ultimately support successful treatment completion.

The training focused on how to put together results from both conventional growth-based and molecular methods of TB drug susceptibility testing (including conflicting or contradictory results) to request further testing and/or design optimal treatment regimens for TB patients.
