The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) is recognized as a provider of continuing dental education by the American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) and is accredited as a provider of continuing medical education by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). The AAOMS adheres to the ADA CERP Standards and Procedures and the AAOMS adheres to the ACCME Essentials and Guidelines, including the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support in its development and delivery of continuing dental and continuing medical education activities.
It is the policy of the AAOMS to ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor in scientific/educational activities. All faculty and others who participate in the planning and execution of an AAOMS educational activity are required to disclose all commitments to or relationships with industry. This requirement includes relationships with pharmaceutical companies, biomedical device manufacturers or distributors, or others whose products or services may be considered to be related to the subject matter of the scientific/educational activity. The principal intent of requiring disclosure is not to prevent a speaker with conflicts of interest from making a presentation. Disclosure is required so that course directors may reasonably decide whether to make adjustments in the program and its faculty, and so that participants in the activity may formulate their own judgments regarding the presentation in the light of full disclosure of related information.
In accordance with the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support, all speakers have been informed of the AAOMS Policy on Disclosure of Relevant Conflicts of Interest. Additionally, speakers who have disclosed industry relationships have been counseled, in writing, of the necessity to deliver their presentations in a manner free of commercial bias. Written notification is made, in accordance with AAOMS Policy, to resolve any relevant conflicts of interest.
