Success seen in fighting CME bias

Progress in keeping commercial bias from industry-based certified CME is at hand, say those who produce and fund it.

Providers of CME are following the rules,” said John Kamp, executive director, Coalition for Healthcare Communication, in a new video, Conflict of Interest: The Bottom Line, produced by CME Peer Review, an independent review organization.

But keeping med ed independent remains a struggle—there is a 38% non-compliance rate for conflict of interest disclosures, per the Accreditation Council for CME (ACCME).
