Disclosure Information •

With respect to personal financial relationships, contracted research includes research funding where the institution gets the grant and manages the funds and the person is the principal or named investigator on the grant. 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. The ACCME considers financial relationships to create actual conflicts of interest in CME when individuals have both a financial relationship with a commercial interest and the opportunity to affect the content of CME about the products or services of that commercial interest. The ACCME considers “content of CME about the products or services of that commercial interest” to include content about specific agents/devices, but not necessarily about the class of agents/devices, and not necessarily content about the whole disease class in which those agents/devices are used. With respect to financial relationships with commercial interests, when a person divests themselves of a relationship it is immediately not relevant to conflicts of interest but it must be disclosed to the learners for 12 months. The provider collects disclosure information from all Individuals in control of content. Those who refuse to disclose this information are disqualified from participating. For any person who reports a relevant financial relationship, the provider uses a peer review process to resolve the potential conflict of interest. For presentations that have the greatest potential for bias, the provider asks an independent third party reviewer to conduct a second peer review as an additional mechanism to resolve conflicts of interest. (SCS 2.1, SCS 2.2, SCS 2.3)

Ayaz Samadani, MD In compliance with the guidelines established by ACCME I have NO actual or potential conflict of interest in relation. I have no relevant financial interest to this program or presentation.
