Criterion 07: #7051

Finding: 
Noncompliance
Published Date: 
October 22, 2011

The provider did not have evidence of consistently implementing a mechanism to resolve conflicts of interest when persons in control of content reported relevant financial relationships. The only evidence provided was an attestation form signed by the speaker/planner/staff that stated, "I will ensure that any financial relationship that I have with a commercial interest will not effect the recommendations I make about clinical care." Attestation alone is not a mechanism to resolve conflicts of interest.  (SCS 2)
