dc.description.abstractA descriptive design was used in this secondary analysis . of data to describe the perceptions of tuberculosis among homeless persons (N=54) with latent tuberculosis and their satisfaction with tuberculosis clinic services. Components of the Health Belief Model used as the conceptual orientation for this study were perceived seriousness, perceived threat, barriers to action, and cues to action. Content analysis of interview data from the parent study produced themes and categories that addressed the research questions. Participants were homeless, predominately male, and had very little or no income. Participants perceived TB as a moderate threat to their life and health, and a low threat to accessing shelter and travel. The participants were very satisfied with TB Clinic Services. Participants' perceptions of the seriousness of TB varied from seeing it as not serious to seeing it as potentially very serious. Statements by participants indicate a need for further education on tuberculosis.en_US
