IBCLE Speaker Disclosure & Conflict of Interest Declaration
It is the policy of the IBLCE to make best efforts to insure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all programs, which qualify for Continuing Education Recognition Points (CERPs).
Consequently, all speakers/presenters participating in any program for which CERPs are awarded are expected to disclose to the program audience any affiliations that may have a bearing on the subject matter of their presentation. Such affiliations include, but are not limited to:
• companies and commercial entities as defined in the IBLCE Minimizing Commercial Influence on Education Policy
• any other persons or entities related to the subject matter of the presentation topic or the general topic of the program as a whole.
The intent of this policy is to ensure that any real or potential conflict of interest shall be identified openly so that listeners may form their own judgments about the presentation with the full disclosure of pertinent facts. It remains for the audience to determine whether the speaker’s outside interests may reflect a possible bias in the information presented.
It is the responsibility of the Program Provider to distribute, collect and retain completed Speaker Disclosure & Conflict of Interest Declaration Forms from each speaker on the program schedule. Furthermore, it is the Program Provider’s responsibility to print any disclosures made by Speakers in the program materials and to provide IBLCE, upon request, with copies of the completed disclosure forms. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in denial of CERPs credit from IBLCE.
Possible types of affiliation include: grant/research support; receipt of honorarium, travel or other benefits; acting as a consultant/independent contractor, employee officer, director, or owner of a self‐managed equity interest; participation as par to a speaker’s bureau or being a regular contributor to a publication; having a close friend or family member who is an officer, director, employee or who has a self‐managed equity interest; and any other financial or material support.
I have no actual or potential declarations to make in relation to this program.
I have an affiliation with one or more persons or entities that could be perceived as having a bearing on my presentation of this subject.
