Faculty Disclosures of Relevant Financial Relationships
Because CME activities are conducted in the public interest, it is important to assure the public that education received by physicians and other health care professionals through whom patient care decisions are made is conducted with the highest integrity, scientific objectivity and in the absence of bias. A conflict of interest exists when individuals have both a financial relationship with a commercial interest and the opportunity to affect the content of CME about the product or services of that commercial interest. The ISHRS adheres to the principles and guidelines of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).  The ACCME holds providers of CME responsible for collecting information from all in control of content and resolving those conflicts prior to the commencement of the CME activity. The intent of the conflict of interest resolution process is to assure that provider, faculty and planner financial relationships with commercial interests and resultant loyalties do not supersede the public interest in the design and delivery of continuing medical education activities for the profession.

Anyone in control of content of this CME activity is required to disclose any financial relationships or relationships to products or devices they have with commercial interests/manufacturers associated with or discussed in their presentation or relevant to the subject matter of this Workshop, of any amount over the past 12 months.

Such disclosures will be published in the program materials provided onsite at the Workshop.
