Disclosure Policy

AASLD is an accredited provider of continuing medical education and adheres to the policies and standards set forth by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). As such we appreciate your help in partnering with us to follow accreditation guidelines and help us create high-quality education that is independent of industry influence. In order to participate as a person who will be able to control the educational content of this accredited CE activity, we ask that you disclose all financial relationships with any ineligible companies that you have had over the past 24 months.

We define ineligible companies as those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.

There is no minimum financial threshold; you must disclose all financial relationships, regardless of the amount, with ineligible companies. We ask you to disclose regardless of whether you view the financial relationships as relevant to the education.

All abstract-presenting authors must complete their own financial disclosure statement on the abstract submission site either disclosing all financial relationships with commercial interests or indicating that none exist. Co-authors are strongly encouraged to complete their financial disclosure statements as well; submitting authors will NOT have the ability to submit disclosures on behalf of a co-author.

Presenting author disclosures not received before the deadline stated in the abstract acceptance notice will be administratively withdrawn.
