Disclosure of Relevant Faculty Relationships
UC Davis Health is required to ensure balance, independence and objectivity in CME activities. We control all decisions related to the identification of CME needs, determination of educational objectives, selection and presentation of content, selection of people and organizations in a position to control content, selection of educational methods, and evaluation of activities.
Course directors, planning committee members, presenters, authors, moderators, panel members, and others in a position to control the content of CME activities, are required to disclose relevant financial relationships to ensure activities are independent from commercial interests.
Learners are able to assess the potential for commercial bias in information when complete disclosure, resolution of conflicts of interest, and acknowledgment of commercial support are provided prior to the activity. We believe this mechanism contributes to the transparency and accountability of CME activities.
