Cooperative agreement

Cooperative Agreement

Activities for Program Evaluation:

  • To improve TB case management and program accountability and feedback, the grantees should hold quarterly cohort reviews at the state or local levels or both. Cohort reviews are integral to TB control and they provide a systematic review of the management of cases and contact investigations.


Instruction guide

Instruction Guide

Instructions on cohort reviews, definitions, roles of staff, timelines, core elements, and guidance on tailoring the process to your program are published in the CDC document, "Understanding the TB Cohort Review Process: Instruction Guide.“

  • Also refer to International Journal of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, 2006 October, 10(10) 1133-9; Title “Ensuring accountability: the contribution of the cohort review method to TB control in NYC”, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, New York, New York, 10007 USA.

  • Grantees should report the progress on conducting cohort reviews, including number of cases discussed, key issues identified during these cohort reviews and recommendations provided. Additionally progress on implementing these recommendations should also be included in the progress reports


Definitions

Cohort Review:A systematic review of the management of patients with TB disease and their contacts. A “cohort” is a group of TB cases counted over a specific period of time, usually 3 months. TB cases are reviewed for the patient’s clinical status, the adequacy of the medication regimen, treatment adherence or completion, and the results of contact investigation

Case Review: A part of case management. Systematic regular review of patient progress presented by the health department employee primarily responsible for managing that case. Plans are made to address any barriers to adherence.
