Antidote is committed to creating, developing, and operating high-quality, relevant, and practical continuing medical education activities that are in compliance with the ACCME's policies on commercial support and disclosure. Specifically, we are dedicated to ensuring that our activities are planned and implemented free of the control of commercial interests. To this end, Antidote requires everyone who is in a position to influence the content of an activity to disclose all relevant relationships with commercial interests. Antidote then seeks to resolve these conflicts. Any person who refuses to disclose their relationships, or whose conflicts cannot be resolved may not participate in the activity. In addition, it is our standard practice to disclose all relevant financial relationships of our faculty in writing to our attendees before the beginning of an educational activity.
Antidote also requires that faculty disclose to the participants when discussing any unlabeled or investigational use of any commercial product or device not yet approved for use in the United States.
The planning staff of Antidote Medical Education Company, and RealCME have no commercial relationships to disclose.
