MDS Disclosure and Resolution of Conflict of Interest Policy
It is the policy of The Movement Disorder Society (MDS) to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all MDS sponsored educational activities. All planning committee and faculty members participating in any MDS sponsored activity are required to disclose to MDS and the activity audience all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest. Relevant relationships are defined as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months. This pertains to relationships with pharmaceutical companies, biomedical device manufacturers, or other corporations whose products or services are related to the field of Movement Disorders. This disclosure will be provided to all participants prior to the beginning of the CME activity. 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 and resolved prior to the activity, so that there is no commercial bias present in the presentation. Failure by any faculty or planning committee member to disclose all such relationships will result in their inability to participate in the CME activity.
