Criterion 7: #55972
The provider collects disclosure information from all persons in control of content, including planners, course directors, and faculty. The staff of the Office of CME reviews the information to identify any conflicts of interest. The provider uses a disclosure form that asks the person completing it to suggest a method for resolving conflicts of interest that are identified through the disclosure process. A content expert reviews the form to determine if the proposed method to resolve the conflict is adequate. If it is not deemed adequate, the reviewer suggests another method to resolve the conflict. Once approved, the individual is prompted to resolve their conflict and to verify they have taken the approved actions.
