This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of Ochsner Clinic Foundation and the Alliance of Independent Academic Medical Centers. The Ochsner Clinic Foundation is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Ochsner Clinic Foundation designates this live activity for a maximum of 5.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The Ochsner Clinic Foundation relies upon invited speakers at all sponsored continuing medical education activities to provide information objectively and free from bias of conflict of interest. In accordance with ACCME and institutional guidelines pertaining to potential conflicts of interest, the faculty for this continuing medical education activity has been asked to complete faculty disclosure forms. In the event that some invited speakers indicate that they have a relationship which, in the context of the subject of their invited presentation, could be perceived as a potential conflict of interest, their materials have been peer reviewed in order to ensure that their presentations are free of commercial bias.
