AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM
ASCCP designates this live activity for a maximum of 16 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
All those who have an opportunity to control content (Faculty, Program Directors, Reviewers, Staff, etc), are required to complete a COI based on the following instructions:
ASCCP members and the general public place great trust in the work of the Society. Real or perceived undisclosed conflicts of interest may jeopardize that trust and ASCCP’s effectiveness. Conflicts of interest also may affect the objectivity of decisions that ASCCP officers and volunteers make. To minimize the potential impact of possible conflicts of interest, the Board of Directors has determined that all participants in ASCCP activities must report all real or potential conflicts prior to the activity being developed and delivered to the learners.
Additionally, 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.
Please disclose all financial relationships that you have had in the past 24 months with ineligible companies (see definition below). For each financial relationship, enter the name of the ineligible company and the nature of the financial relationship(s). There is no minimum financial threshold; we ask that you disclose all financial relationships, regardless of the amount, with ineligible companies. You should disclose all financial relationships regardless of the potential relevance of each relationship to the education.
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 accme.org/standards.
The faculty, committee members, and staff who are in position to control the content of this activity are required to disclose to ASCCP and to learners any financial relationship(s) that have occurred within the prior 24 months with any ineligible entities whose products are related to the continuing education content. Financial relationships are defined as remuneration in any amount from the ineligible entities in the form of grants, research support, consulting fees, salary, ownership interest (eg, stocks, stock options, or ownership interest excluding diversified mutual funds), honoraria or other payments for participation in speakers’ bureaus, advisory boards, or boards of directors, or other financial benefits. The intent of this disclosure is not to prevent planners with relevant financial relationships from planning or delivering content, but rather to provide learners with information that allows them to make their own judgments of whether these financial relationships may have influenced the educational activity with regard to exposition or conclusion. ASCCP has reviewed all disclosures and resolved or managed all identified conflicts of interest, as applicable.
All of the relevant financial relationships listed for these individuals have been mitigated.
