commercial interest control.
_____ No promotional activities may occur during CE events. This includes distribution of product brochures or product information
in conjunction with the educational activity or handouts. No slides or handouts developed by a commercial interest may be
used during presentations. I agree to not promote any specific proprietary or commercial business interest in my role as
planner or faculty/speaker.
_____ I understand that an employee of a commercial interest may NOT serve as a faculty or planner of CE accredited by AANP if the
educational content that the employee controls relates to the products and/or services of the commercial interest employer.
If the content DOES NOT relate to the products and/or services of the commercial interest employer, the employee may be
eligible to serve as speaker or planner, but the educational content must be reviewed (should be sent with the application)
before approval of CE credit will be considered.
_____ I understand programs with faculty serving on an industry Speakers’ Bureau in related clinical areas will be considered,
providing requirements are completed and details submitted prior to the activity’s accreditation. A review of education
is required for activities covering the same clinical area as a faculty member’s Speakers’ Bureau activities

need for an independent peer review, which will be the responsibility of the CE planner/provider to obtain from qualified
peer reviewer (see definition of independent peer review in policy).

been granted AANP accreditation, but before the educational activity has been implemented/delivered, AANP must be
notified and a new disclosure form must be provided. A second review for approval will become necessary before the activity
can be delivered.
_____ I understand that if changes are made to educational presentation/material(s) after the CE program has been granted AANP
accreditation, but before the educational activity has been implemented/delivered, I must alert AANP and provide
information/documentation on the changes. A second review for approval will become necessary before the activity can be
_____ If I have indicated a financial relationship or interest, I understand that this information will be reviewed to determine
whether a conflict of interest may exist, and I may be asked to provide additional information.
_____ I understand that failure to disclose, false disclosure, or inability to resolve conflicts of interest will require the CE Provider to
identify a replacement.
