Disclosures

Potential Conflicts of Interest:

USF Health endorses the standards of the ACCME that requires everyone in a position to control the content of accredited educational activity to disclose all financial relationships with commercial interests that are related to the content of the educational activity.  All accredited activities must be balanced, independent of commercial bias and promote improvements or quality in healthcare. All recommendations involving clinical medicine must be based on evidence accepted within the medical profession.

A conflict of interest is created when individuals in a position to control the content of an accredited educational activity have a relevant financial relationship with a commercial interest, which therefore may bias his/her opinion and teaching.  This may include receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, stocks or other financial benefits.

USF Health will identify, review and resolve all conflicts of interest that speakers, authors or planners disclose prior to an educational activity being delivered to learners.  Disclosure of a relationship is not intended to suggest or condone bias in any presentation but is made to provide participants with information that might be of potential importance to their evaluation of a presentation. USF Health does not endorse any products or services.

All Faculty, Planning Committee Members and Staff have completed conflict of interest disclosures, and all state that they all have nothing to disclose.  The planning documents are on file in the Office of Continuing Professional Development at USF Health.
