Tuberculosis Case Management for People In Correctional Facilities.

The publication provides guidance for the staff of corrections facilities, public health services and clinical tuberculosis (TB) services in New Zealand, to enable them to carry out tasks relating to the case management of people with active TB disease or with latent TB infection in corrections facilities.

The protocol does not cover the management of people with TB while they are hospitalised in a public hospital, which usually occurs only at the commencement of TB treatment, or if complications requiring re-hospitalisation occur during the course of TB treatment.
