Criterion 7: #180517

Finding
Noncompliance

The provider describes that it uses peer-review of instructional content as a mechanism to resolve conflict of interest for planners, reviewers, and speakers.


Rationale: Peer-review of content is not an acceptable approach to manage conflicts of interest of planners because the provider has not demonstrated that it took an active role to ensure the independence of those decisions that planners made prior to the development of instructional materials for the educational activity (e.g., selection of topics and speakers).
