What to Expect: Clinical Trial Visit Checklist
Things to Remember and Bring
You’re scheduled for a screening appointment. What happens next?
Each study has its own requirements. Here are some general tips to prepare for your screening visit:
Avoid alcohol approximately 48 hours before your appointment as it can affect test results.
Avoid poppy seeds approximately 7 days before your appointment as these can affect test results.
Avoid eating for approximately 8-12 hours before your appointment (exact time varies for each study).
Avoid strenuous exercise such as weight lifting or running for 2-3 days before you appointment as this can also affect test results.
Do not stop taking any prescribed treatments without your doctor’s approval.
Come alone to your screening appointment. Family, friends and children are NOT allowed in with you. This is to protect the privacy of all participants.
Bring photographic proof of identity, either a valid ID, driver’s license or passport
