Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education
All planners, faculty, and others in control of educational content are required to disclose all financial relationships with ineligible companies within the prior 24 months before planning the education. An ineligible company is any entity whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.
The Standards for Integrity and Independence require that we disqualify individuals who refuse to provide this information from involvement in the planning and implementation of accredited continuing education.
Financial relationships must be reviewed to identify which relationships are relevant. Relevant financial relationships must be mitigated prior to the individuals assuming their roles. Our program coordinators will assist with the review and necessary mitigation.
