In order to keep patients in the study, we will offer an incentive.
The incentive will work on a point based system. Every time a patient completes a step of the study (the opening survey, a follow-up) they will receive points. The point value of each task will be different for example, an in person follow-up will be more points than a self reporting follow-up. Patients will collect points to redeem them for a prize, and the more points they have the more expensive the prize. The prizes can range from a stick of deodorant to various gift cards.
