      Disclosures

      Current ACCME guidelines state that participants in CME activities should be made aware of any affiliation or financial interest that may affect the speaker’s presentation(s). Therefore, it is the policy of the American Society of Cytopathology to insure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all its educational programs. All planning individuals participating in any ASC Educational Activity are expected to disclose to the program audience any real or apparent conflict(s) of interest that may have a direct bearing on the subject matter of the continuing education program. This pertains to relationships with any entity producing, marketing, reselling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The intent of this policy is not to prevent a speaker with a potential conflict of interest from making a presentation. It is merely intended that any potential conflict should be identified openly so that the listener may form his own judgment about the presentation with the full disclosure of the facts. It remains for the audience to determine whether the speaker’s outside interests may reflect a possible bias in either the exposition or the conclusions presented.

      All participants involved in developing this educational activity, including Workgroup Facilitators, Executive Board Members, ASC National Office Staff and scheduled speakers have been asked to identify potential conflicts.
