Disclosure

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed the program is “truly independent” and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires non-promotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty are fully disclosed to the program’s participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education now mandates the provider adequately manage all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at CH fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
