Financial Interest Index

As a provider accredited by the Accreditation council for Continuing Medical Education, ASCRS must ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all its individually or jointly provided activities.

All individuals participating in an activity designated for CME credit must disclose any financial interest or relationship with an ineligible company that produces, markets, sells, resells, or distributes ophthalmic products/devices/drugs or services used on or by patients that are discussed in an educational presentation or lack thereof. Financial interest can include such things as grants or research support, consultant, stockholder, member of speaker’s bureau, et.

The intent of this disclosure is not to disqualify anyone from participating, but to provide the program committee with information so they can design and implement a balanced, independent, and scientific educational activity.
