Disclosure of relevant financial relationships
As a provider accredited by the Texas Medical Association, the South Texas Health System McAllen Office of Continuing Medical Education must ensure balance, independence and objectivity in all CME activities to promote improvements in healthcare — not proprietary interests in commercial transactions. The provider controls all decisions related to identification of CME needs, determination of educational objectives, selection and presentation of content, selection of all persons and organizations that will be in a position to control the content, selection of educational methods and evaluation of the activity. Course directors, planning committee members, presenters, authors, moderators, panel members and others in a position to control the content of this activity are required to disclose relevant financial relationships with commercial interests related to the subject matter of this educational activity. Attendees 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. Informed learners are the final safeguards in assuring that a CME activity is independent from commercial support. We believe this mechanism contributes to the transparency and accountability
