Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease that can be transmitted from person to person and people in prison are a particular risk group.
TB disease can be fatal if left untreated and when mismanaged can lead to the development of drug resistance.

You’ll look in-depth at the prison specific challenges of managing a TB outbreak in a prison and work with your fellow learners to highlight good practice.
This course is designed for anyone interested in learning about TB in a prison setting.
