PROGRAM PLANNERS' DISCLOSURE INFORMATION

In accordance with the ACCME Accreditation Criteria, the Orthopaedic Trauma Association must ensure that anyone in a position to control the content of the educational activity (planners and speakers/authors) has disclosed all financial relationships with any commercial interest.  For additional information, please visit the ACCME website (see below for definitions). 

Commercial Interest: The ACCME defines a “commercial interest” as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services used on or consumed by patients. Providers of clinical services directly to patients are NOT included in this definition.

Financial Relationships: 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), 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.

Conflict of Interest: Circumstances create a conflict of interest when an individual has an opportunity to affect CME content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.

The ACCME also requires that OTA manage any reported conflict and eliminate the potential for bias during the educational activity. Any conflicts have been managed to our satisfaction. The disclosure information is intended to identify any commercial relationships and allow learners to form their own judgments. However, if you perceive a bias during the educational activity, please report it on the evaluation. 

An indication of the participant’s disclosure appears  in the app along with the commercial company or institution that provided the support. Disclosures may also be searched through the AAOS Disclosure Program at: https://disclosure.aaos.org.

The OTA does not view the existence of these disclosed interests or commitments as necessarily implying bias or decreasing the value of the author’s participation in the meeting.
