Disclosure Information

Disclosure of Financial Interests

As an accredited provider of Continuing Medical Education (CME), the American Geriatrics Society continuously strives to ensure that the education activities planned and conducted by our faculty meet generally accepted ethical standards as codified by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the American Medical Association (AMA).  To this end, we have implemented a process wherein everyone who is in a position to control the content of an education activity has disclosed to us all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interests within the past 12 months as related to the content of their presentations.  Disclosure documents are reviewed for potential conflicts of interest, and if identified, such conflicts are resolved prior to final confirmation of participation.

The ACCME defines a “commercial interest” as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients.  Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research, which includes research funding where the institution gets the grant and manages the funds and the person is the principal or named investigator on the grant), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected. ACCME considers relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner. 

Faculty conflicts of interest in this particular CME activity have been resolved by having the presentation content independently peer reviewed by the session moderator or a member of the Annual Meeting Program Committee with no conflicts of interest.  The existence of commercial or financial interests of speakers related to the subject matter of their presentations should not be construed as implying bias or decreasing the value of their presentations.  However, disclosure should help participants form their own judgments. 

All speakers were independently selected by the Program Committee. Those speakers who disclosed affiliations or financial interests with commercial interests involved with the products or services to which they may refer are listed below.
