  1. Tuberculin skin test screening practices among US Colleges and Universities.

    Article - En anglais

    Context. - Concern about transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis on college campuses has prompted some schools to institute tuberculin skin test screening of students, but this screening has never been evaluated.

    Objective

    - To describe tuberculin skin test screening practices and results of screening in colleges and universities in the United States.

    Design and Setting

    - Self-administered mail and telephone questionnaire in November and December 1995 to a stratified random sample of US 2-year and 4-year colleges and universities.

    Main Outcome Measures

    - Type of tuberculin screening required ; types of schools requiring screening ; number and rate of students with positive skin test results and/or diagnosed as having tuberculosis.

    Results

    - Of the 3148 US colleges and universities, 624 (78%) of 796 schools surveyed responded.

    Overall, 378 schools (61%) required tuberculin screening ; it was required for all new students (US residents and international students) in 161 (26%) of 624 schools, all new international students but not new US residents in 53 (8%), and students in specific academic programs in 294 (47%). Required screening was more likely in 4-year vs 2-year schools, schools that belonged to the American College Health Association vs nonmember schools, schools with immunization requirements vs schools without, and schools with a student health clinic vs those without (P<. 001 for all).
