CME/CE Information

Continuing Education Credits are available for physicians and psychologists. Applications for credit must be completed online with the meeting evaluation survey. It is the policy of the CPDD to require disclosure of financial relationships from individuals in a position to control the content of a CME activity; to identify and resolve conflicts of interest related to those relationships; and to make disclosure information available to the audience prior to the CME activity. Presenters are required to disclose discussions of unlabeled/unapproved uses of drugs or devices during their presentations.  The evaluation will be available during and after the meeting.

Satisfactory Completion
Learners must complete an evaluation form to receive a certificate of completion. Your chosen sessions must be attended in their entirety.  Partial credit of individual sessions is not available. If you are seeking continuing education credit for a specialty not listed below, it is your responsibility to contact your licensing/certification board to determine course eligibility for your licensing/certification requirement.

Psychologists
This course is co-sponsored by Amedco and CPDD.  Amedco is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists.  Amedco maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

The Meeting Evaluation Survey will be available at www.cpdd.org during and after the meeting. We encourage all registrants to complete the evaluation. Attendees requesting CME or CE credits must complete the survey in order to obtain credits. Your candid input on the 2020 meeting is appreciated as we strive to improve the meeting each year.

Disclosure of Relevant Financial Relationships with Commercial Interests
Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria for promotional speakers’ bureau, ownership interest (e.g. stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected. ACCME considered relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner. Contracted research includes research funding where the institution gets the grant and manages the fund and the person is the principal or named investigator on the grant. There is no minimum dollar amount for relationships.

commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. Providers of clinical service directly to patients are not commercial interests – unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled, by a commercial interest. The following are not commercial interests:

  • 501-C Non-profit organizations that do not advocate for commercial interests

  • Liability insurance providers
