Effective January 1, 2022, the ACCME requires that all relevant financial relationships are mitigated prior to all individuals assuming their roles of influencing an accredited activity.
The ACCME Standards for Integrity and Independence require that we disqualify individuals who refuse to provide this information from involvement in the planning and implementation of accredited continuing education. Thank you for your diligence and assistance
List below each of your relationships with ineligible companies. Specify the company, your role, and whether the relationship is ongoing or has ended.
Enter the Name of Ineligible Company: An ineligible company is any entity whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients. For specific examples of ineligible companies visit www.accme.org/standards.
Enter the Nature of Financial Relationship: Examples of financial relationships include employee, researcher, consultant, advisor, speaker, independent contractor (including contracted research), royalties or patent beneficiary, executive role, and ownership interest. Individual stocks and stock options should be disclosed; diversified mutual funds do not need to be disclosed. Research funding from ineligible companies should be disclosed by the principal or named investigator even if that individual’s institution receives the research grant and manages the funds
Has the Relationship Ended? If the financial relationship existed during the last 24 months, but has now ended, state "yes" in the last column. This will help the education staff determine if any mitigation steps need to be taken.
