Program Integrity:

To ensure that all educational activities are free from bias, all presenters must declare vested interests. In the event that any form of commercial support is provided for an educational activity, the course sponsor will maintain control of the educational content and disclose to the learners all financial relationships or lack of, between the commercial supporter and the provider or presenters.

  • Funds from a commercial source will be in the form of an unrestricted educational grant to the provider of the educational activity and must be acknowledged in printed material and brochures.
  • Learners must be made aware of the nature of commercial support of all educational sessions.
  • Educational activities that present research conducted by commercial companies will be designed and presented with scientific objectivity.
  • Learners will be informed of any off-label use of a commercial product that is presented in educational activities. Off-label use refers to using a pharmaceutical agent for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was approved by the FDA.
  • The approval status for an educational activity granted by the AARC does not expressly or implicitly confer AARC endorsement of the activity’s content.
