Finding
Compliance

The provider describes that it reaches out to the planners of its case conferences annually to ask them to update a spreadsheet of financial relationships that they, or their spouse/partners, have with ACCME-defined commercial interests. The provider ensures that any decisions about topics and speakers for conferences that are made by members that have relevant financial relationships—i.e., financial relationships related to the content of those conferences—are reviewed and approved by a planning committee member who does not have any relevant financial relationships before they are implemented.
