The IAS–USA designates this enduring material for a maximum of 2.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Disclosure of Financial Interests

It is the policy of the IAS–USA to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all its educational activities. All faculty members (planners, speakers, presenters, etc) participating in IAS–USA-sponsored activities are required to disclose to the program audience any financial relationships with commercial interests within the past 12 months that could be perceived to influence, or give the appearance of potentially influencing, the written or oral presentation. The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) defines a financial interest as an interest in any amount and defines a commercial interest as “any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests—unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined commercial interest.” The information is intended to make the IAS–USA audience aware of speaker and contributor interests and commitments with commercial interests, enabling the audience members to form their own judgments about such associations.

Each author or contributor is required to complete this financial disclosure declaration. In accordance with IAS–USA policy, the IAS–USA will identify and resolve ahead of time any possible conflicts of interest that may influence CME activities with regard to exposition or conclusion. Financial relationship information about authors is included here and at the end of each article; information on the TAM Editorial Board may be found here.
