Financial and Study 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 commercial interests. (A commercial interest, as defined by the ACCME, is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests.) Download sample PowerPoint slide for financial disclosures.
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.
