The International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS) makes every effort to develop CME activities that are independent, objective, scientifically balanced presentations of information. The IARS has implemented mechanisms requiring everyone in a position to control content to disclose all relevant financial relationships with commercial interests. Relevant financial relationships are defined as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months, including financial relationships of the spouse or partner of the person in control of content. Disclosure of any or no relationships is made available in advance of all educational activities. The IARS evaluates, and if necessary, resolves any conflicts of interest prior to the start of the activity. Individuals who refuse or fail to provide the required disclosures are disqualified from being a planning committee member, teacher, or author of CME, and cannot have control of, or responsibility for, the development, management, presentation or evaluation of the CME activity.
It is IARS policy that an employment relationship with a commercial interest presents an inherent conflict of interest that cannot be resolved successfully with respect to CME activities. Therefore, employees of commercial interests are prohibited from serving in any position to control CME content (planner, reviewer, presenter, speaker, moderator, etc.).
The information provided in this CME activity is for continuing education purposes only and is not meant to substitute for the independent medical judgment of a healthcare provider relative to diagnostic and treatment options of a specific patient’s medical condition.
This CME activity is supported entirely by the International Anesthesia Research Society. There is no commercial support for this activity.
