Resource for training on MDR-TB

By Erica Lessem | 30 Mar, 2013

The World Medical Association announced today the creation of a new
application for tablet computers that will allow physicians to access a
training course on the treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis

The application, created by the WMA and the New Jersey Medical School
Global Tuberculosis Institute, gives physicians the flexibility to access
the course material at any time, even when they are discussing treatment
options with their patients. The application was developed in collaboration
with the World Health Organization with financial support from the Eli
Lilly MDR-TB partnership.

The new application contains the eight training modules which comprise the
WMA's course on MDR-TB. It is intended as an introduction to MDR-TB
management and is consistent with the principles of the WHO Stop TB
Strategy. The application, which will be accessible from the Google and
iPhone app webpages, will be available on 10-inch screen tablets as well as
smaller displays, including smartphones, and is being released for the
Android platform. The Apple iPad version will also be available shortly.

Here are links to the press releases and how to access it on the Google
Play Store.
