Ensure Your Content is Valid
HRS, as an ACCME-accredited provider of accredited continuing education (ACE), requires that all faculty follow the guidelines set forth in Standard 4 of ACCME's Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education when presenting in an HRS-provided educational activity. As such, you are expected to present education that is fair and balanced. All clinical content presented should support safe, effective patient care. In addition:
- 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.
- 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. Engagement in these topics should not advocate for or promote practices that are not, or not yet, adequately based on current science, evidence, and clinical reasoning.
