China

China had 1 million cases of TB in 2012 and accounts for 12% of the Global TB burden. Nurses in China have welcomed the training offered by the ICN TB Project and under the enthusiastic leadership of the  School of Nursing, Peking Union Medical College (PUMC) and Chinese Nurses Association (CNA)  5 workshops have been run since 2009. 145 nurses have been trained as trainers leading to a further 8968 nurses and allied health workers being informed about various aspects of TB according to local priorities. Chinese nurses are committed to carry out research to build the evidence-based practice for good-quality TB nursing care. During the training review in 2011 which brought together 38 nurses who had previously attended a TFT, participants showed interesting in TB nursing research and desire to receive relative training. A number of nurses have taken the initiative to carry out research after attending training. At First National Forum on TB Nursing Care, 20 of them attended and about 80 abstracts were submitted, 30 of these were submitted by participants of TFT program. The main topics for research have so far focused on three main areas of concern including nursing interventions, patient education, and infection prevention and control.
