On Thursday, January 25th from 08:00 – 09:00 EST (14:00 – 15:00 CET; 15:00 – 16:00 SAST) Dr. Susan van den Hof presented on KNCV’s Patient Triage Approach.
KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation developed the Patient Triage Concept to ensure rapid diagnosis of TB and all forms of DR-TB (i.e. using rapid diagnostics) followed by early initiation of the most effective treatment regimen for every TB/DR-TB patient. KNCV team will present the methodology of the Right Diagnosis, Right Treatment Approach, and will share experiences with implementation of the shorter treatment regimen (STR) and individualized treatment regimens (ITR) containing new (bedaquiline, delamanid) and repurposed drugs in several countries under the Challenge TB project. During this webinar, KNCV will also share tools developed to assist countries in effectively introducing new drugs and regimens for DR-TB within their own context.
