2017-2018 eLearning Planning Committee

Relevant Financial Relationship Disclosures

In keeping with Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) standards for commercial support, AABB asks everyone who is in position to control the content of a continuing medical education activity to disclose all relevant financial relationships with commercial interests. ACCME defines a commercial interest as any entity producing, marketing, reselling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. (Providers of clinical services directly to patients are not commercial interests). A relevant financial relationship is a relevant financial relationship in any amount occurring within the previous 12 months. Note that ACCME requires relevant financial relationships of spouses or partners to be included for conflict of interest disclosure purposes. Relevant financial relationships reported by faculty will be disclosed at the beginning of all continuing education activities. Below are the relevant financial relationships reported by AABB for the AABB eLearning Committee during the 2017-2018 association year:
