Disclosure of Financial Relationships It is the policy of the IAS–USA to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all its educational activities. All faculty members (planners, speakers, presenters, etc) participating in IAS–USA-sponsored activities are required to disclose to the program audience any financial relationships with commercial interests within the past 12 months that could be perceived to influence, or give the appearance of potentially influencing, the written or oral presentation. The ACCME defines financial relationships as“those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria for promotional speakers’bureau, ownership interest (eg, stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities fromwhich remuneration is received, or expected. ACCME considers relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner.The ACCME has not set a minimum dollar amount for relationships to be significant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship.”
