Unwarranted prescription variations for treatment of latent tuberculosis infection

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

[Extract]
A systematic review and meta-analysis by Hannah Alsdurf and colleagues1 assessed at which stage of the latent tuberculosis infection care continuum, from screening to completion of treatment, people get lost. The study reported that most people get lost before starting treatment of latent tuberculosis infection and that the absence of provider recommendation for treatment in 30% of patients with latent tuberculosis infection who had completed the medical evaluation substantially contributed to that loss.
