Conflict of Interest Disclosure

The AANS requires that the content of CME activities provide balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor. Planning must be free of the influence or control of a commercial entity, and promote improvements or quality in healthcare. In addition, the content or format of a CME activity and its related materials must promote improvements or quality in healthcare and not a specific proprietary commercial interest.

The AANS requires a conflict of interest (COI) disclosure form from all participating directors, faculty, moderators, panelist and presenters. The conflict of Interest Disclosure form must be completed prior to participation in the planning of any educational activity or participation in any CME activity. If you do not disclose, you will not be able to present at the 2017 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting.

Please note: AANS policy does not permit expense reimbursement.
