In direct response to the September 2004 ACCME Standards for Commercial Support, CME Consultants issued a conflict of interest policy dated January 2, 2005. The policy states that the disclosure of potential financial conflicts of interest within the last 12 months must be made and resolved prior to the date of the CME/CE activity where commercial support grants are to be used to fund the activity. The following conflicts have been managed and resolved through CME Consultants Independent Review Committee. Our intent is to assist learners in assessing the potential for bias in information that is presented during the CME/CE activity. The faculty is also aware it is their responsibility to inform the audience if discussion of any non-FDA-approved uses of pharmaceutical, medical equipment, prostheses, etc will be included in their presentation.
