“Improving Rhode Island's Tuberculosis Preventive Services in Primary Care”
This study explores primary care team members' knowledge, attitudinal, and skill gaps related to LTBI testing and treatment. The gaps identified will inform the design of a survey and telementoring educational program (TB infection ECHO course). The EMR data query will further explore the reach of the ECHO model. The hypothesis for this study is that the TB infection ECHO course will be feasible, will have a significant impact on primary care provider participants' learning and performance related to LTBI testing and treatment in their primary care practices, and will increase the number of LTBI tests and treatment prescribed in primary care.
