Faculty disclosure

As an ACCME, ACPE and ANCC accredited provider, USF Health must ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor in all its directly or jointly sponsored educational activities. Therefore, any person who is in a position to influence or control the content of an accredited activity must disclose any financial interest or other relationship with a commercial interest producing healthcare goods or services that has a direct bearing on the subject matter of the accredited activity. A relevant financial interest or other relationship may include such things as grants or research support, employee, consultant, major stockholder, member of speaker’s bureau, etc. that has occurred for any dollar amount over the past 12 months. The intent of disclosure is not to prevent a speaker with a relevant financial or other relationship from making a presentation, but rather to resolve any conflicts prior to the educational activity so the learner may participate in a balanced, unbiased accredited educational event.
