As part 1 of a series, this document contains recommendations for a minimum prime sponsor follow-up system, including the following (1) a series of recommendations designed to facilitate the implementation of a minimum follow-up capability; (2) a recommended participant follow-up questionnaire; and (3) a set of sample data tables that can be used to facilitate the production of prime sponsor follow-up reports. Subjects covered in the guidelines offered in the five chapters of this publication include recommended minimum types of data to be collected (such as types and sources of data and types of terminees to be included in local follow-up activities); frequency, timing, and number of participant contacts; and operational recommendations for participant surveys (such as contact methods, types and sources of participant contact data, location and contact of former participants, and logistics and staffing for collecting data efficiently.
