Recommendation ID
CG117/7
Question
Incentives for attending new entrant screening:- Research is needed to determine whether Port of Arrival scheme referrals with incentives for attending screening identify more cases of latent tuberculosis (TB) infection and active TB disease in new entrants than Port of Arrival scheme referrals with no incentives.
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
Why this is important:- Currently there is no evidence from controlled studies in this area. If incentives were found to improve attendance for tuberculosis (TB) screening among this population, then this method would be a more effective way of reaching and treating this population.
