CONFLICT OF INTEREST (COI) DISCLOSURES
NEW THIS YEAR – ALL COI DISCLOSURES DUE WITH SUBMISSION
All individuals in a position to control the content of a Continuing Education (CE) activity (planners, chairs, presenters, authors, reviewers, etc.) must disclose all financial relationships with ineligible companies they have had in the past 24 months to the CE provider using the Conflict of Interest (COI) Disclosure Form. Individuals who fail or refuse to provide this information will be disqualified from involvement in the planning and implementation of this activity.
Due to recent updates to the ACCME Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education, for those submitting for any CME accredited sessions, disclosures completed by each co-author or co-presenter must accompany the submission. Sessions with incomplete or missing disclosures will not be able to be submitted. The submitter is responsible for ensuring that each co-author or co-presenter is aware of and has complied with the disclosure requirement before submission.
