It is the policy of the Minnesota Medical Association (MMA) to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in its CME activities. To comply with the Standards for Commercial Support of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the MMA requires planning committee members and faculty to disclose any relevant financial relationship he/she and his/her spouse/partner has with a commercial interest.
The following financial relationships were disclosed and resolved prior to the activity:
Advisory Board: Aura Biosciences and Castle Biosciences
Royalties: Alcon Surgical
The remaining members of the faculty and planning committee for this conference have indicated that they have no relevant financial relationships to disclose related to the content of the CME activity. Faculty members have declared that they will uphold the MMA’s standards regarding CME activities and that any clinical recommendations are based on the best available evidence or are consistent with generally accepted medical practice. Please indicate in the comments section of the evaluation form whether you detect any instances of bias toward products manufactured by commercial interests.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and polices of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the Minnesota Medical Association and the VitreoRetinal Surgery. The Minnesota Medical Association (MMA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
