Active choice and promoting medical adherence

Intervention Desrciption

To test medicinal adherence, the authors used four different interventions when asking educational employees if they wanted reminders to get a flu shot. These interventions tested were opt-in, opt-out, active choice, and enhanced active choice. Enhanced active choice, which favors one alternative by detailing the disadvantages of the other, was the most effective method of promoting medicinal adherence.
