RELATIONSHIP WITH INDUSTRY
We are very pleased to introduce CAP-ACP Co-Developed, Accredited Symposia for our 2019 Conference. All Co-developed Accredited Learning Activity sessions are pre-approved by the Conference Organizing Committee, and are accredited by the CAP-ACP after complying with the accreditation guidelines of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) and Canadian Medical Association (CMA). The Annual Meeting Planning Committee (AMPC) has acted as the Program Planning Committee for all accredited sessions, and third-parties (including industry, external planners, or communication companies) are not involved in the program development, in order to maintain objectivity and scientific integrity. The Co-developed Accredited Learning Activities are accredited as part of the Conference program under Section 1 of the RCPSC’s Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program.
