|Client reminders (printed or telephone)||Recommended|
|Client incentives||Insufficient evidence|
|Small media (letters, brochures, leaflets, pamphlets, flyers, newsletters)||Recommended|
|Mass media||Insufficient evidence|
|Group education (trained lay or health educator)||Recommended|
|One-on-one education (telephone or face to face)||Recommended|
|Reducing structural barriers (time, distance, hours, nonclinical settings, simplifying admin, support like daycare, transportation, etc.)||Recommended|
