Complete Faculty Disclosure Form
For accredited CME activities, every presenter, speaker, panelist, and moderator must disclose whether they or their spouse/partner have had financial relationships with ACCME-defined commercial interests within the past 12 months. Please click here to complete or update your disclosure form. An individual who does not complete the disclosure form may not participate in a UCSF CME activity.
Commercial Interest: A commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, 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.
In accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education’s (ACCME) Standards of Commercial Support, it is the policy of the UCSF CME program to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all of its continuing medical education activities. Each activity is planned, presented, and evaluated in accordance with the national standards developed by the ACCME.
Through the use of its Faculty Disclosure form, UCSF CME ensures that all individuals involved in the planning and production of UCSF CME activities will help us to identify any and all potential conflicts of interest to allow resolution of them prior to the CME activity. In addition, all speaking faculty are required to disclose to learners off-label and/or investigational use of a product and any limitations on the information presented, including preliminary data, anecdotal evidence or unsupported opinion. If you (or your spouse or significant other) had a personal financial relationship in the last 12 months with an ACCME-defined commercial interest related to the subject matter of your presentation, you will need to submit your lecture materials in advance for peer review.
Note that UCSF CME asks individuals to disclose all financial relationships with ACCME-defined commercial interests regardless of the relevance to a specific presentation or CME activity. UCSF CME will determine at the time of reviewing the disclosure if the relationship is relevant to the activity, and if a conflict of interest exists that must be resolved.
