Community matters

For over two decades, OneWorld has hosted a monthly tuberculosis clinic to provide treatment for individuals diagnosed with latent TB. Individuals are screened for TB at the OneWorld Quick Sick Clinic or during a medical appointment.

If the screening comes back positive, OneWorld schedules a chest x-ray to determine if the TB infection is active or latent. For positive/abnormal chest x-rays, OneWorld confers with the Douglas County Public Health Department to ensure individuals begin their treatment right away to limit the risk of a public health outbreak.

For negative/normal chest x-rays, OneWorld offers four- and nine- month treatment regimens. During patients’ first appointments, OneWorld clinicians review treatment plans and potential side effects and complete a blood draw to monitor the effects of the treatment.

Once treatment is completed, patients receive a treatment completion card and letter to refer to for future needs.

Regardless of TB type, OneWorld provides case management to ensure patients have a staff member to consult for questions and a direct resource for other needs such as financial or language assistance.

OneWorld’s TB clinics and screening efforts help maintain the low numbers of TB-related infection in the Greater Omaha area and prevent public health outbreaks. These proactive services help all members of the community have access to quality health care.

Because Community Matters.
