Are you doing the annual symptom questionnaire on all employee’s with history of positive TB or only those groups identified by your annual TB risk assessment?


Thanks for your assistance,

We do a symptom survey annually and unless there is indication on that, we do not do any repeat CXR.

I know there was a brief discussion on this a few months ago, but asking everyone's opinion again:


How often are you sending employees with LTBI and no Rx for CXR screening (q 3 years, q 5 years, etc.) and what evidence/guidelines are you basing these intervals on?
