Last Clinical Trial Visit

Similar to the other visits (except that home monitoring is over), this visit doesn’t always mean the journey’s end — the trial may require follow-up visits. Ask when the results will be available, and how you’ll be informed. While your part may be over, the clinical trial itself can last longer.
