The ISPRM 2020 World Congress has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the Association of Academic Physiatrists (AAP). The
AAP is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Therefore, all educational programming is developed and must be presented in compliance with all ACCME requirements. Speakers and Authors must adhere to these guidelines, which are outlined below.
All speakers must sign a disclosure statement regarding the existence of any relevant financial interest and/or other relationship(s) they and/or their spouse/legally recognized domestic partner might have with the manufacturer(s) or provider(s)
of any commercial product(s) or service(s) or with commercial and academic laboratories that accept samples for testing or develop any laboratory test or test(s) to be discussed during their presentations.
Please note that authors with conflicts that may affect the content of their presentations were required to provide a copy of their slides in advance of the meeting so they can be peer-reviewed. Authors
who disclosed a conflict may be contacted and asked to upload their slides at least one week in advance of the meeting so that the slides can be reviewed by members of the Program Committee. Once approved, the slides cannot be
changed. Disclosure of financial relationships will be listed in the Program and on the website.
Talks must be free of commercial bias for or against any product. If commercial products are discussed, the session must present objective information about those products, based on generally accepted scientific evidence. Speakers
must not engage in the marketing of product(s) in any way during the presentation. Moderators have been instructed to intervene if this occurs.
The content or format of a CME activity or its related materials must promote improvements or quality in healthcare and not a specific proprietary business interest of a commercial entity. Presentations must give a balanced view of
therapeutic options. Use of generic names will contribute to this impartiality. If the educational material or content includes trade names, trade names from several companies should be used when available, not just trade names
from a single company.
To satisfy potential conflict-of-interest requirement and ACCME guidelines, there are specific requirements regarding the use of any logos on presentation slides.
Presenters and Authors included a conflict-of-interest slide as part of their presentations to meet ACCME requirements, even when there is nothing to disclose. This AAP-approved slide will be inserted automatically as the second slide in the presentation.
