The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) complies with the Standards for Commercial SupportSM of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). IASLC applies these Standards throughout the educational program process—from development through implementation—to ensure independence of educational activities. IASLC policies are outlined below.
In compliance with ACCME Standards, each individual in a position to control the content of an educational activity must disclose all relevant financial relationships with commercial interests. The ACCME defines “relevant” financial relationships as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest. Individuals who refuse to disclose relevant financial relationships are not allowed to have control of, or responsibility for, the development, management, presentation or evaluation of CME activities. All disclosures are reviewed for potential conflicts, and appropriate steps for resolution are taken when needed. Additionally, individuals must agree to comply with specific rules (attestations) to ensure content is balanced and evidence-based, does not promote the business interests of a commercial entity, and conforms to the generally accepted standard of experimental design, data collection and analysis. Presenters are also required to clearly identify any non-FDA approved uses of products. IASLC also monitors presentations for quality and compliance through direct observation (IASLC staff and CME committee members), and through member feedback on evaluation surveys.
For the IASLC 2019 North America Conference on Lung Cancer (NACLC 2019), disclosure information will be available for viewing on the conference website. Presenters are also required to include a disclosure slide listing all relevant financial relationships with commercial interests. CME related questions should be directed to IASLC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer designates this live activity for a maximum of 11 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
