Commercial Interest 5:

* If Employee relationship, you will be asked further questions in Statement 8

Statement 1: I will not accept payments or reimbursements from a commercial interest (any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients) for my role in the planning and delivery of this CME activity. If I am approached by a commercial interest in this regard, I will immediately notify SASM. *
Statement 2: All recommendations involving clinical medicine in a CME activity must be based on evidence that is accepted within the profession of medicine as adequate justification for their indications and contraindications in the care of patients. All scientific research referred to, reported or used in CME in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet these standards, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet these standards. If I am a session chair and/or an abstract discussant, any contribution I make to discussion, will meet these standards. *
Statement 3: CME must give a balanced view of therapeutic options. Use of generic names will contribute to this impartiality. CME educational material or content that includes trade names should include trade names from several companies where available, not just trade names from a single company. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet this standard, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet this standard. If I am a session chair and/or an abstract discussant, any contribution I make to discussion, will meet this standard. *
Statement 4: Educational materials that are a part of this activity, such as slides, abstracts, and handouts, cannot contain any advertising, trade names, or product-group messages, or commercial interest logos. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet this standard, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet this standard. If I am a session chair and/or an abstract discussant, any contribution I make to discussion, will meet this standard. *
Statement 5: The content of the CME activity must not promote the proprietary interest of any commercial interest. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet this standard, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet this standard. If I am a session chair and/or an abstract discussant, any contribution I make to discussion, will meet this standard. *
Statement 6: The content of the CME activity must not be influenced by any commercial interest. If I am a presenter, my presentation will meet this standard, and if I’m a planner, I will not approve any content that does not meet this standard. *
Statement 7: If I am an abstract reviewer, I will not score any abstracts of which I am an author or which I know to be from my institution. If I or my spouse/domestic partner has a financial relationship with a company engaged in producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients and whose products or services are the subject of an abstract I am reviewing, I will refrain from scoring that abstract. Additionally, I will base my recommendations for content selection solely on the mean score when I or my spouse/domestic partner have a financial relationship with a company engaged in producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients and whose products or services are the subject of an abstract I am selecting. *

For Employee Relationship disclosures ONLY:

Statement 8: Because you are an employee of a commercial interest, Amedco needs you to answer a few additional questions.

Is your employer producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients?

Is your employer a provider of clinical service directly to patients?
Is the content related to products or business lines of your employer?

We will review your disclosure and decide if further action is, or is not, necessary. In the meantime, there is nothing else you need to do.
