AACC requires all presenters in accredited Continuing Education Activities to disclose any possible bias or conflict of interest regarding the topic that is being presented. A conflict of interest is defined as any financial interest of the
speaker in a company’s products or services discussed in their presentation. For example, if the speaker (1) holds stock in the company, (2) is paid salary or consultant fees by the company, (3) has grant support from the company,
and/or (4) has received support for travel expenses, honoraria, etc. from the company, a conflict of interest exists regarding this topic and must be reported. If the speaker has a financial interest in a company but is not discussing a
product or service of that company, no conflict of interest must be disclosed. No abstracts will be accepted without disclosure information supplied via submission of the ACCENT form.
