AIM:

To describe the surveillance and control protocol for tuberculosis in healthcare students in use at the CMO of University "Sapienza" and founded on a dedicated database.

METHODS:

Analysis of health certificates through a dedicated data storage software based on Microsoft Access 2007.

RESULTS:

Students resulting positive to Mantoux test who did not undergo second-level examination (chest X-ray, TB Gold, prophylaxis) are invited to refer themselves within ten days to the infectious disease specialist.

CONCLUSION:

the methodological analysis, refined over the years by the CMO staff of the Sapienza University of Rome, allowed to match clinical certification data, to rapidly focus upon TBC spread control among healthcare settings, to register new students time zero before their admission to courses and potential professional exposure, to perform epidemiological studies aimed to increase TBC control through healthcare system released clinical certification confirmation.
