In SCS 6.1, the ACCME says that included in disclosure to the learners should be the nature of the relationship the person has with each commercial interest. What does the ACCME mean by nature of the relationship?

Last Revised:

The nature of the relationship means the role they play or service they provide in exchange for some form of compensation (e.g., independent contractor including contracted research, consulting, promotional speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels and board membership). ACCME has not set a minimum dollar amount for relationships to be relevant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship therefore the dollar value of the relationship does not need to be disclosed.
