Financial Relationship: Any relationship which benefits you
Financial relationships include grants where the money goes
to your organization, if you are the Principal Investigator. Financial
relationships must be reported even if they have ended; in such cases, the end
date should be noted in the Disclosure Grid.
Ineligible Company: Companies that are ineligible to be
accredited in the ACCME System are those whose primary business is producing,
marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or
on patients. Ex: pharmaceutical companies, device manufacturers.
Eligible organizations include hospitals, physician
practices, diagnostic labs that do not sell proprietary products, education
companies (such as Elsevier or UpToDate), insurance companies, software
companies (including electronic medical record companies), and government
agencies. If you are uncertain about the eligibility of an organization, list
it on the Disclosure Grid.
