FORE (accredited CME provider) endorses the standards of the ACCME that requires everyone in a position to control the content of a CME activity to disclose all financial relationships with commercial interests that are related to the content of the CME activity. CME activities must be balanced, independent of commercial bias, and promote improvements or quality in healthcare. All recommendations involving clinical medicine must be based on evidence accepted within the medical profession. A conflict of interest is created when individuals in a position to control the content of CME have a relevant financial relationship with a commercial interest which therefore may bias his/her opinion and teaching. This may include receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, stocks or other financial benefits. FORE has identified, reviewed and resolved all conflicts of interest that speakers, authors, or planners disclose prior to an educational activity being delivered to learners. Disclosure of a relationship is not intended to suggest or condone bias in any presentation. Rather, disclosure is required so participants can make a fair and comprehensive evaluation of a presentation.
