ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST COMPLETE DISCLOSURE OF RELEVANT FINANCIAL RELATIONSHIPS BELOW I DO NOT have a relevant ﬁnancial relationship with a commercial interest. Signature ___________________________________________________________________________ Date _________________________ I DO have a relevant ﬁnancial relationship with a commercial interest. (You MUST list relevant ﬁnancial relationships below.) Signature ___________________________________________________________________________ Date _________________________ First, list the names of commercial interests (deﬁned in the “Glossary of Terms” below) with which you or your spouse/partner have, or have had, a relevant ﬁnancial relationship within the past 12 months. For this purpose we consider the relevant ﬁnancial relationships of your spouse or partner that you are aware of to be yours.
1. Commercial Interest (Example: Company ‘X’)
Second, describe what you or your spouse/partner received (ex: salary, fee, research grant, etc). The American Association of Physician Specialists, Inc., does NOT want to know how much you received. Third, Describe your role.
Nature of Relevant Financial Relationship (Include all those that apply) 2. What was received? (Example: Honorarium) 3. For what role? (Example: Speaker)
EXAMPLE TERMINOLOGY What was received: Salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, research grant, Role(s): Employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting fee, speaker fee, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board ownership interest, excluding diversiﬁed mutual funds), or other ﬁnancial beneﬁt. membership, and other activities (please specify). GLOSSARY OF TERMS Commercial Interest: The ACCME deﬁnes a “commercial interest” as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services, used on, or consumed by, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests - unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-deﬁned commercial interest. Financial relationships: Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual beneﬁts by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., 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 from which 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.
Relevant ﬁnancial relationships: ACCME focuses on ﬁnancial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CME activity. ACCME has not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be signiﬁcant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The ACCME deﬁnes “’relevant’ ﬁnancial relationships” as ﬁnancial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conﬂict of interest. Conﬂict of Interest: Circumstances create a conﬂict of interest when an individual has an opportunity to affect CME content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a ﬁnancial relationship.
