The Academy for Continued Healthcare Learning (ACHL) requires that the faculty participating in a CME activity disclose all affiliations or other financial relationships (1) with the manufacturers of any commercial product(s) and/or provider(s) of commercial services discussed in an educational presentation and (2) with any commercial supporters of the activity. Conflict resolution must occur prior to the CME/CE activity. ACHL also requires participating faculty to disclose when unapproved/unlabeled uses of a product are discussed in a CME/CE activity.
This CME activity might describe the off-label, investigational, or experimental use of medications that may exceed their FDA-approved labeling. Physicians should consult the current manufacturers’ prescribing information for these products. ACHL requires the speaker to disclose that a product is not labeled for the use under discussion. The provider’s documentation of common practices that make the disclosure requirement known to faculty demonstrates compliance with ACCME guidelines.
