Program Planner Disclosure

Disclosure Refusal Statement
The requirement for financial disclosure from committee members, planners, reviewers, authors, and presenters is a mandatory element in maintaining ACCME accreditation for all organizations that provide continuing education (CE) activities. If an individual refuses to disclose, he/she will not be permitted to participate as a planner, committee member, reviewer, author, or presenter.
*Financial Disclosure
As an ACCME-accredited provider, the AUR must ensure that education is fair and balanced and that any clinical content presented supports safe, effective patient care. The ACCME defines ineligible companies as "those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients."

Further, the provider must be able to show that individuals in a position to control the content of an education activity, including committee members, reviewers, planners, authors, and presenters, has disclosed all financial relationships with ineligible companies to the provider. Individuals in a position to control the content must disclose regardless of their view of the relevance of the relationship to the education. The provider must identify, mitigate, and disclose all identified financial relationships to an education activity being delivered to the learners.

If you have or have had within the previous 24 months such a relationship or affiliation, you must disclose this information. Likewise, disclosure that no relationship(s) exists is also required. The intent of this policy is not to prevent an individual with a financial relationship from participating; however, in accordance with ACCME standards, the AUR has developed policies and procedures to manage identified financial relationships.
This indicates discussion of uses not approved by the FDA. The RSNA and AUR recognize that at educational meetings, faculty may discuss the application of some devices, materials, or pharmaceuticals that are not FDA approved. In keeping with the highest standards of professional integrity and ethics, RSNA and AUR require that faculty fully disclose to their audience that there will be discussion of the unlabeled use of a commercial product, device, or pharmaceutical that has not been approved for such purpose by the FDA.
