Faculty disclosure of relevant financial relationship(s)
It is the policy of AAD that all faculty participating in a CME-certified activity are required to disclose to AAD and to learners relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest(s) that they or their first-degree relative (spouse, parent, sibling, or child). “Relevant financial relationships” include financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest. Typically, such relationships would be with companies that sell health care products or services that are consumed by or used in the treatment of patients. The intent of this disclosure is not to prevent participation in CME-certified educational activities by individuals with a relevant financial relationship with commercial interest(s), but rather to provide learners with information on which they can make their own determination whether or not said relationship(s) influenced the content of the educational activity.
Planner and faculty disclosure information is located within the syllabus distributed at the course. Faculty have been asked to also make a verbal disclosure at the start of their presentations supplemented by a disclosure slide to verify the accuracy of the disclosure information printed in the syllabus and ensure their disclosure information is shared with the learners PRIOR to the presentation taking place.
Resolution of conflicts of interest
In accordance with the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support of CME, the American Academy of Dermatology has implemented mechanisms, prior to the planning and implementation of this CME activity, to identify and mitigate conflicts of interest for all individuals in a position to control the content of this CME activity.
