Tuberculosis (TB) Control Incentive Program - Purchasing Incentives

Remember that an incentive doesn't need to be expensive to be meaningful to a client. It is important to base incentive purchases on your knowledge of the client and to make them as personally meaningful to the client as possible. Listen to your clients, and as you build rapport with them, learn their interests. This will enable you to choose meaningful incentives for them. Begin right away with small items while the nurse-client bond is forming. Most incentives cost under $10.

Since there are limitations to the funding available for this program, please remember that all clients do not require incentives nor should incentives be given at every encounter.

Typical items include:
  • Pill minders
  • Food
  • Beverages
  • School supplies
  • Plants
  • Bus tickets
  • Gas vouchers
  • Flowers
  • Birthday cards
  • Fishing lures
Items not covered:
  • Cigarettes
  • Cash
  • Alcohol
  • Gambling
  • Health Services (X-rays)
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Gift cards for places were the above items could be purchased
