Declaration of Disclosure for intellyst® Medical Education

Disclosure and Resolution of Conflict for Individuals in Control of CME Content

Rationale & Purpose
intellyst® Medical Education, in order to comply with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) Standards for Commercial Support: Standards to Ensure Independence in CME Activities, seeks to ensure the disclosure and resolution of conflict for those who have control over development of CME content. The purpose of this policy is to achieve objectivity, balance and scientific rigor in every continuing medical education (CME) activity.

Who Must Disclose
Individuals who are in a position to control the content of a CME activity will disclose to learners all relevant financial relationships with commercial entities. Individuals who may control content include intellyst clinical staff, project managers, the intellyst CME/CPE Committee, as well as planning committee members, presenters and independent reviewers of an individual activity.

Information Provided to Learners
The data provided to learners will include: 1) the name of the individual, 2) the name of the commercial interest(s), and 3) the nature of the relationship the individual has with the commercial interest. This information is provided in the course syllabus or enduring material as appropriate.

Use of Disclosures and Resolution of Identified Conflicts
intellyst® has Policies and Procedures in place which require the disclosure of all individuals in a position to control or develop content. This information is then used to identify potential conflicts and resolve them.
