Disclosure Policy

The University Of Utah School Of Medicine's CME Office policy is that everyone in a position to control the content of a CME activity must disclose any relevant financial relationships with commercial interests. The University of Utah CME Office follows all Accreditation Criteria and Standards of Commercial Support set forth by Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).  

Please see University of Utah CME's Disclosure Policy for more information. 

UUCME Disclosure Tool

Complete your Disclosure if you are in control of content (Planner, Speaker, Moderator, etc) for any CME Activity.  

If you prefer there is a paper form. Please complete this paper form in its entirety (all 6 pages).  The link above is the easiest way to complete disclosure and most encouraged.

 

Why?

The University of Utah strives to be an honest broker of continuing professional education. Educational content should represent a valid portrayal of the state of affairs, and is free from commercial influence. As planner of a CME activity, you have the opportunity to affect CME content.  Does your course's content intersect in any manner with any products or services of a commercial interest that you might have a relationship with? 

Resolving conflicts of interest

Resolving conflicts of interest is never intended to get in the way of legitimate education, while at the same time these potentially conflicted relationships must be managed to prevent commercial bias and assure content validity.
