Guidelines for interaction with industry

The primary objective of professional interactions between medical staff and commercial supporters should be for the advancement of the health of the population rather than the private good of either medical staff or industry.  The primary purpose of Continuing Medical Education/Continuing Professional Development (CME/CPD) activities is to address the education needs of medical staff in order to improve the health care of patients. It is the responsibility of CPD providers to ensure that any educational activity is designed for this purpose.
