Program Planning Committee, CME Committee, Medical Education Council (MEC), and Faculty Disclosure Information
In accordance with disclosure policies of ASAM and the ACCME, the effort is made to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all CME activities.
These policies include resolving all possible conflicts of interest for the Planning Committees, CME Committee, MEC, and Faculty. All activity Planning Committee members and Faculty have disclosed relevant financial relationship information. The ASAM CME Committee has reviewed these disclosures and determined that the relationships are not inappropriate in the context of their respective presentations and are not inconsistent with the educational goals and integrity of the activity.
ACCME's Policy For Disclosures During The COVID-19 Pandemic
Per ACCME's simplified process for COVID-19, the requirement of disclosure of relevant financial relationships and resolution of personal conflicts of interest has been removed. Currently, there are no FDA-approved vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. Hence, there is no possibility of a relevant financial relationship that would create a conflict of interest.
