Management of Tuberculosis
Tuberculosis is thankfully an uncommon disease in Australia, but careful expert management is needed when cases occur. “Management of Tuberculosis” is written to help Australian practitioners in providing safe and effective care in a range of clinical scenarios relating to tuberculosis. This book includes approaches to diagnosis, prevention and treatment of all forms of tuberculosis, including adverse effect management, drug-resistant organisms and spacial settings such as pregnancy. Chapters are also included on BDG vaccination and non-tuberculous mycobacteria.
“Management of Tuberculosis” has been extensively updated in 2017 by expert infectious diseases and respiratory clinicians across Australia. This newly revised editioon incorporates recent evidence and international guidelines on a variety of aspects of tuberculosis, contextualised throughout for the Australian setting. It is an accessible guide for both junior and senior clinicians alike.
All proceeds from the sale of this book go to support the work of the Australasian Tuberculosis Forum. The TB Forum is a collaborative network of policy makers, health workers, researchers, people affected by TB and advocates working to end the TB epidemic in the Asia-Pacific region.
