As a provider accredited by the ACCME, AMIA requires that everyone who is in a position to control the content of an educational activity disclose all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest or other entity for 12 months prior to the educational activity.
Faculty and planners who refuse to disclose relevant financial relationships will be disqualified from participating in the CE activity. For an individual with no relevant financial relationship(s), course participants must be informed that no conflicts of interest or financial relationship(s) exist.
AMIA uses a number of methods to resolve potential conflicts of interest, including: planners’ review of disclosures using a COI resolution rating scale; limiting content of the presentation to that which has been reviewed by two or more peer reviewers; ensuring that all scientific research referred to conforms to generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, and analysis; undertaking review of the educational activity by a content reviewer to evaluate for potential bias, balance in presentation, evidence-based content or other indicators of integrity, and absence of bias; monitoring the educational activity to evaluate for commercial bias in the presentation; and/or reviewing participant feedback to evaluate for commercial bias in the activity.
