Presentation Guidelines

Unbiased and Independent Content

I agree to uphold academic standards to insure independence and scientific rigor in my role in the development and presentation of this CME & CE activity: 

  • All recommendations for patient care in accredited continuing education must be based on current science, evidence and clinical reasoning, while giving a fair and balanced view of diagnostic and therapeutic options.
  • All scientific research referred to, reported, or used in accredited education in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, analysis, and interpretation.
  • I will omit company logos and brand names from the educational materials that are part of my CME presentation, such as slides, abstracts and handouts.

For compliance with ACCME requirements, your presentation will need to include the following slides: 

  • Disclosure of Financial Relationships      
  • Learning Objectives, 
  • Summary: Key Learning Points with References  
  • Citations and References (evidence-based, peer-reviewed)

HIPAA & PHI (Protected Health Information) Laws

It is the responsibility of the faculty to comply with HIPAA laws, and they are liable in case of any privacy breach that violates HIPAA regulations. Faculty members are expected to remove all identifying information from presentation materials. If presentations require the use of patient images for effective teaching, presenters must obtain patient consent as required by HIPAA.

My presentation will comply with the following statements:

  • I have removed all Personal Health Information (PHI) or de-identified images used in my materials including photographs as well as dates of patient care or birth dates (typically found in the margins of clinical images).
  • When presenting specific patient cases or case histories, I warrant that I have obtained HIPAA compliant authorization for any PHI in my presentation materials.
  • If my presentation will contain patient identifiers, it is my responsibility to obtain consent from my patients for use of their PHI, including photographic images.
     

Copyright and Fair Use Laws

I have obtained permission from copyright holder(s) to reproduce/copy from their work. I acknowledge that Baptist Health South Florida (BHSF) will not be held legally responsible for any misrepresentation on my part regarding copyright infringement.
 

Unlabeled/ Unapproved Use

Although accredited continuing education is an appropriate place to discuss, debate, and explore new and evolving topics, these areas need to be clearly identified as such within the program and individual presentations. It is the responsibility of accredited providers to facilitate engagement with these topics without advocating for, or promoting, practices that are not, or not yet, adequately based on current science, evidence, and clinical reasoning. 

I agree to disclose to the audience if my presentation includes information about a product not labeled by the FDA for the use under discussion or that is still investigational.
