City of Hope is accredited by the Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians.
This activity has been planned and implemented in strict compliance with the Essential Areas, Standards, and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). City of Hope takes responsibility for the content, quality and scientific integrity of this CME activity.
As an accredited CME provider City of Hope requires everyone who is in a position to control the content of an educational activity to disclose all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest. The ACCME defines "relevant financial relationships" as financial relationships in any amount, occurring within the past 12 months, including financial relationships of a spouse that could create a conflict of interest.
Written disclosure of all such relevant commercial relationships will be provided in the program syllabus. Any potential conflicts relative to the previous disclosure have been resolved.
City of Hope further encourages faculty/authors to identify investigational products or off-label uses of products regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, at first mention and where appropriate in the content.
The information and opinions presented in this activity do not constitute medical or legal advice. Health care providers must exercise their own professional judgment in their clinical practice, and when confronted with the issues discussed herein, should not substitute this curriculum for the advice of legal counsel or application of sound ethical principles.
