Financial Disclosures

Disclosure Statement

It is the policy of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics to plan and implement all of its educational activities in accordance with the ACCME Essentials and Areas and ACCME® Policies to ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor. In accordance with the ACCME® Standards for Commercial Support, everyone (speakers, moderators, committee members and staff) who is in a position to control the content of an educational activity certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ is required to disclose all financial relationships with any commercial interests (see definition below) within the past 12 months that creates a real or apparent conflict of interest. Disclosure must include financial relationships of the individual and those of their spouse/partner. Individuals who do not disclose will be disqualified from participating in a CME activity.

This disclosure pertains to relationships with ACCME-defined commercial interests whose products or services may be related to the subject matter of the presentation topic.

  • The ACCME definition of a commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients.
  • The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests – unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined commercial interest.
  • Diagnostic laboratories are not considered commercial interests unless they are owned by or have a sister organization which is a commercial interest.

Continuing Education Units (Clinical Laboratory Scientists, Directors, and Personnel)
ACMG is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS) Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education (P.A.C.E.®) Program. ACMG is approved by the Florida Board of Clinical Laboratory Personnel as CE Provider (50-11878). ACMG is approved by the California Department of Health Services through the ASCLS P.A.C.E.®. This activity has been approved for a maximum of 21.5 contact hours.

The course ID #20-729756 is registered with CEBroker.

National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC).

The National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) has authorized ACMG to offer up to 21.5 CEUs for the activity 2019 ACMG Genetics and Genomics Review Course. The American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC) will accept CEUs earned at this program for the purposes of genetic counselor certification and recertification.

Claiming your Educational Credits

Complete the activity and carefully complete the evaluation form.

HIPAA Compliance
The ACMG supports medical information privacy.  While the ACMG is not a “covered entity” under HIPAA 1996 and therefore is not required to meet these standards, ACMG wishes to take reasonable steps to ensure that the presentation of individually identifiable health information at ACMG-sponsored events has been properly authorized.  All presenters have completed a form indicating whether they intend to present any form of individually identifiable healthcare information.  If so, they were asked either to attest that a HIPAA-compliant consent form is on file at their institution, or to send ACMG a copy of the ACMG HIPAA compliance form. This information is on record at the ACMG Administrative Office and will be made available on request.

Content Validation
ACMG follows the ACCME policy on Content Validation for CME activities, which requires:

Content Validation and Fair Balance

  • ACMG follows the ACCME policy on Content Validation for CME activities, which requires:
  1. All recommendations involving clinical medicine must be based on evidence that is accepted within the profession of medicine as adequate justification for their indications and contraindications in the care of patients.
  2. All scientific research referred to, reported or used in CME in support or justification of patient care recommendations must conform to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis.

 

  1. Activities that fall outside the definition of CME/CE; “Educational activities that serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession” (source: ACCME and AMA) will not be certified for credit. CME activities that promote recommendations, treatment, or manners of practicing medicine or pharmacy that are not within the definition of CME/CE or, are known to have risks or dangers that outweigh the benefits or, are known to be ineffective in the treatment of patients.
  2. Presentations and CME/CE activity materials must give a balanced view of therapeutic options; use of generic names will contribute to this impartiality.  If the CME/CE educational materials or content includes trade names, where available, trade names from several companies must be used.


Off-label Uses of Products
When an off-label use of a product, or an investigational use not yet approved for any purpose, is discussed during an educational activity, the accredited sponsor shall require the speaker to disclose that the product is not labeled for the use under discussion, or that the product is still investigational. Discussions of such uses shall focus on those uses that have been subject of objective investigation.

 
Disclaimer
The ACMG does not endorse, or recommend the use of this educational program to make patient diagnoses, particular by individuals not trained in medical genetics. Adherence to the information provided in these programs does not necessarily ensure a successful diagnostic outcome. The program should not be considered inclusive of all proper procedures and tests or exclusive of other procedures and tests that are reasonably directed at obtaining the same results. In determining the propriety of any specific procedure or test, a healthcare provider should apply his or her own professional judgment to the specific clinical circumstances presented by the individual patient or specimen.
