Training Modules

A consortium of GLI partners including FIND, KNCV, US CDC, USAID and WHO have developed a modular Xpert MTB/RIF training package with funding from USAID (TB CARE I). The modules are based on materials originally developed by FIND, KNCV and Cepheid, and are in PowerPoint format for country customization. Depending on the audience, modules may be selected and adapted according to need (e.g. basic users, supervisors, clinicians). Topics covered include: Overview of TB and diagnostics, biosafety, specimen collection, procurement, installation, Xpert MTB/RIF technology, results interpretation, reporting, troubleshooting, maintenance, a clinical guide, and quality assurance.
