What to expect at your first CICL visit

Your first visit to the Centre intégré de cancérologie de Laval (CICL) will last from two to four hours, so please plan for this amount of time in your schedule. At this visit, you’ll meet the CICL’s interdisciplinary team. These staff members will:

  • Review your medical history
  • Conduct additional exams and tests
  • Discuss treatment options with you
  • Explain the next steps

At the end of your visit, an administrative officer will take your picture for your record. This photo lets us identify you and ensures that we give the right treatment to the right person.

We’ll also place a bar code on the back of your hospital card. You can use this bar code to directly check in at the centre when you come.

What to bring to your first visit

For your first visit, you must bring:

  • Your health insurance card
  • Your hospital card
  • Your list of current medications (including supplements and vitamins)
  • Your family doctor’s contact information
  • Your pharmacy’s contact information
  • The medications you need to take during your appointment
  • If you have diabetes, please bring any food or insulin that you need to take
  • If you have a cardiac device (pacemaker), bring your device’s ID card

We suggest that you bring a friend or family member who can help you remember all of the instructions that you’ll get at this visit.
