Therapeutic Drug Monitoring: Nuts and Bolts
Download
Despite the existence of effective TB chemotherapy, challenges remain that often prevent high cure rates, especially in patients with concurrent illness. Slow response to TB therapy may lead to prolonged infectiousness or acquired drug resistance and further burdens public health by extending treatment duration. Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM) is an effective tool which allows the clinician to make informed decisions regarding the timely adjustment of drug therapy especially for those patients who are slow to respond to treatment, have drug-resistant TB, are at risk of drug-drug interactions or have concurrent diseases. In this webinar the role and indications for use of Therapeutic Drug Monitoring in complex TB patients will be discussed.
Presenter: Charles Peloquin Pharm.D., FCCP

Motivational Interviewing: Guiding Positive Change in Patient Behaviors
Download
Providing caring and effective services for our patients with TB can be emotionally and psychologically demanding. This is especially true as we reflect upon the link between a patient's biopsychosocial well-being and the choices they make which can directly impact their current and future health status. This interactive webinar will focus on the critical issue of healthy decision-making and change, specifically through the employment of an evidence-based practice: Motivational Interviewing (MI). Attendees of this webinar will be introduced to the foundational concepts of MI, as well as the benefits of its employment; taught skills that promote collaborative working relationships with the most challenging of patients; and provided tools that guide patients toward more positive health behavior changes. The class is designed to encourage engaged learning through the use of vignettes and real-time, online "knowledge checks". Presented by Ann Landes, PhD
