Sponsor, Faculty and Planner Disclosure Information for IDC

NHPCO thanks the faculty and planners for their commitment to planning and providing robust educational content for this conference. NHPCO endorses the Standards of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and American Nurses Credentialing Commission (ANCC) which specify that sponsors (i.e. NHPCO) of CE/CME credit disclose relevant financial relationships with commercial interests whose products or services are discussed in educational presentations. NHPCO has implemented a process where everyone who is in a position to control the content of an educational activity (i.e. planners and faculty) must disclose all relevant financial relationships they or a spouse/partner have (or have had within the past 12 months) with a commercial interest.
