Financial Disclosure PowerPoint Slides
Presenters are required to disclose both verbally and on the first presentation slide whether or not they have financial relationships with ACCME-defined ineligible companies. (The ACCME defines ineligible companies as "those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.") Please review a Sample Disclosure Slide for required information.
The National Faculty Education Initiative (NFEI) provides online training on the differences between Certified CME and Promotional Activities: http://www.nfeinitiative.org/. NFEI, developed by the Alliance for Continuing Education in the Health Professions and the Society for Academic CME, addresses the pressing need to make sure that faculty conflicts of interest are resolved when teaching in or authoring certified CME activities. This program will help faculty differentiate between requirements for certified CME activities and those for industry-sponsored promotional activities, the most notable being that certified CME must be current, evidence-based and presented in an objective, balanced manner. NFEI is a free resource to support the CME faculty community.
