CONFLICT-OF-INTEREST POLICY FOR THE ASH ANNUAL MEETING
ASH is committed to providing quality, objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous continuing medical education activities that are free from commercial and non-commercial bias. In accordance with the rules of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), ASH policy requires that all meeting session chairs, speakers, and moderators disclose in writing prior to the meeting any financial relationships they may hold with companies in the healthcare and biotechnology industries. Poster presenters are likewise required to disclose in writing any financial relationships they may have prior to the meeting and display their disclosures as a part of their poster presentation. If bias, actual or perceived, occurs during the presentations, session attendees are encouraged to address such bias during the question-and-answer periods following the presentations.

All ASH annual meeting presenters (including invited chairs and speakers, and abstract presenters and moderators) are asked to disclose any relationships of the following types: Employment, Consultancy, Stock Ownership, Research Funding, Honoraria, Patents & Royalties, Speakers Bureau, Membership on an entity’s Board of Directors or advisory committee, and any other financial relationship including Travel Support.

Any questions about this policy or concerns regarding disclosures should be directed to [email protected].

NON-CME SESSIONS
ASH is committed to continuously re-evaluating our policies and processes to ensure that they align with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education’s (AACME) increasingly stringent standards. The ACCME defines Ineligible Companies (IC), also known as commercial interests, as those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, including biomedical startups and diagnostic laboratories with proprietary products, are classified as ineligible companies and, per ACCME, any presentation given by employees of industry is considered to be promotional in nature and therefore ineligible to be accredited.

There are a number of programs and sessions in the program that are not accredited for CME. Please note that oral and poster abstracts are no longer included in the accredited programming.

The final list of non-CME sessions is subject to change. Accredited sessions will be labeled on the virtual platform and an up-to-date list of sessions will also be available.
