Disclosure of Relevant Financial Relationships with Commercial Interests
Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria for promotional speakers’ bureau, 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), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected. ACCME considered relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner.
Contracted research includes research funding where the institution gets the grant and manages the fund and the person is the principal or named investigator on the grant.
There is no minimum dollar amount for relationships.
A commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients.
