Reimagining surgical care for a healthier world
As a provider accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), SAGES must ensure balance and independence in all of its accredited educational activities.
**NEW** The ACCME expects individuals involved with CME to disclose ALL financial relationships with ineligible company in the past 24 months. An ineligible company is defined by the ACCME as:
“those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.”
Examples of such organizations include:
The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be ineligible companies. There is no minimum threshold; we ask that you disclose all financial relationships, regardless of the amount, with ineligible companies. You no longer need to disclose for your spouse/partner.
Please indicate if you have any relationships with ineligible companies to disclose. If you answer "Yes" to the below, we will need to collect the company information on the next step.
