Reporting of Disclosures
This process is meant to ensure that anyone who is in a position to control the content of the education activity has disclosed to all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest (see below for definitions) as it pertains to the content of the presentation. Should it be determined that a conflict of interest exists as a result of a financial relationship you may have, you will be contacted and methods to resolve the conflict will be discussed with you. In addition, full disclosures for all authors must be revealed by a slide at the beginning of the presentation. Failure or refusal to disclose or the inability to resolve the identified conflict may result in the withdrawal of the invitation to participate.
All authors for oral, poster and video presentations are required to disclose ALL financial relationships with commercial interests involved in producing healthcare goods or services, active over the 12 MONTH period preceding the meeting whether or not this relationship is directly related to the material being presented. The abstract submitter must input the disclosure information for each named author with submission. Failure to comply with disclosure rules with complete honesty and openness will result in the individual forfeiting his or her right to present at the next congress. The organizing Committee has no issue with industrial affiliation, but they do with failure to disclose that affiliation.
The audience MUST be given the tools with which to judge a presentation in light of the author’s interaction with industry.
Commercial Interest: The ACCME defines a “commercial interest” as any proprietary entity producing health care goods or services, with the exemption of non-profit or government organizations and non-health care related companies.
Financial relationships: Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit.
