DISCLOSURE OF RELEVANT FINANCIAL RELATIONSHIPS

It is the policy of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) to insure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all educational activities.  All individuals in a position to control content of SSH educational or scientific content must disclose the name of commercial interests producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing healthcare and/or simulation-related goods or services with which the individual and his/her spouse or partner has had a relevant financial relationship within the past 12 months.

Please review the definitions below of “commercial interest”, “financial relationships”, “relevant financial relationships”, and “conflict of interest” to ensure compliance with this policy.

Definitions

Commercial interest: A “commercial interest” is defined as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing healthcare and/or simulation-related goods or services used on patients. Providers of clinical service directly to patients are not considered commercial interests. 

Financial relationships

Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, 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 or advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected. Relationships of the individual’s spouse or partner are to be included as those of the individual.

Relevant financial relationships

Financial relationships with commercial interests are relevant if they have occurred in the 12-month period preceding the time the individual is involved in controlling SSH educational and/or scientific content.  There is no minimal dollar amount considered for relationships to be considered relevant.  Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship.

Conflict of Interest

Circumstances create a conflict of interest when an individual has an opportunity to affect SSH educational or scientific content about products of services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a relevant financial relationship.

Non-Promotion of Relevant Financial Relationships during Educational Presentations

Required Verbal Disclosure of Relevant Financial Relationships

Note that at the beginning of an SSH educational presentation, course directors and all contributing faculty members must verbally disclose all relevant financial relationships, and list those relationships on electronic presentation materials used during the presentation.  Cooperation with this requirement is essential.  Faculty will be evaluated on whether or not disclosure was made.

If financial relationships exist that are not related to the topic being presented, these relationships do NOT need to be disclosed.

If relevant financial relationships exist, in addition to verbal disclosure at the beginning of the presentation, faculty must discuss how the content has been adjusted to avoid the introduction of commercial bias during the presentation.  For example, faculty may state that:

▪  “I am covering topics other than those represented by my relationship with (Name of commercial entity).”

▪  “I will not be presenting this content in a promotional manner.”

▪  “I will not endorse (name of commercial entity) during this presentation.”

▪  “Another faculty member is covering content related to this commercial entity.”

▪  “There will be no case studies or activities presented that in any way represent past, current or prospective clients of (name of commercial entity).”

▪  Any recommendations made during this presentation are evidence-based, or consistent with current consensus-based simulation practice.” 

Monitor Required

Educational content delivered by individuals with relevant financial relationships will be monitored by a member of the SSH Education Committee Content Advisory Team.

Promotional Activity Restriction & Non-endorsement of Commercial Entities

Endorsement of commercial entities, products, goods and services is not permitted in learning sessions that award contact hours.  This will be strictly enforced. 

In addition, faculty using equipment or materials for instruction during presentation of accredited content must refrain from endorsement of commercial products or companies during the presentation.
