Abstract

The World Health Organization's Action Framework for tuberculosis elimination in low-tuberculosis incidence countries includes the screening for active and latent tuberculosis in selected high-risk groups, including health care workers. In this context, medical and health profession students, exposed to nosocomial tuberculosis transmission during training and clinical rotations, are target populations for tuberculosis screening. No updated data are available on tuberculosis screening practice and knowledge of medical and health profession students in Italy.
Knowledge, experiences, and attitudes toward Mantoux test among medical and health professional students in Italy: a cross-sectional study / Montagna, M T; Mascipinto, S; Pousis, C; Bianchi, F P; Caggiano, G; Carpagnano, L F; De Giglio, O; Barbuti, G; Auxilia, F; Destrebecq, A; Castaldi, S; Baldovin, T; Bargellini, A; Righi, E; Boccia, G; Santoro, E; Casini, B; Baggiani, A; Novati, R; Oriani, R; Odone, A; Mezzoiuso, A G; Orsi, G B; Napoli, C; Pasquarella, C; Veronesi, L; Ripabelli, G; Sammarco, M L; Rossini, A; Squeri, R; Laganà, P; Antonuccio, G M; Genovese, C; Tardivo, S; Torre, I; Alfano, R; Pennino, F; Torregrossa, M V; Barchitta, M; Agodi, A. - In: ANNALI DI IGIENE MEDICINA PREVENTIVA E DI COMUNITÀ. - ISSN 1120-9135. - 30:5 Supple 2(2018), pp. 86-98.
