In keeping with the ACCME "Standards for Commercial Support of Continuing Medical Education" and the "American Nurses' Credentialing Center Commission on Accreditation / Missouri Nurses' Association operational requirements for commercial support," funds from a commercial source should be in the form of an educational grant for the support of programming and the terms, conditions and purposes of such grants should be documented by a signed agreement. Any commercial support must be acknowledged in printed materials, including the course brochure and course handouts, though reference must not be made to specific products.
Conflict of Interest Disclosure
CME faculty and the coordinating institution's affiliations and relationships with commercial supporters should be disclosed to participants in program materials prior to the educational activities or from the podium. In compliance with the ACCME Standards and the ANCC COA / KSBN operational standards, copies of all faculty conflict of interest / disclosures must be kept on file with the course sponsor.
