Continuing Education Credits

Credit Statements

Physicians

The American Society for Radiation Oncology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

ASTRO designates this live activity for 19.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Physicists

An application to the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Program (CAMPEP) will be submitted for Medical Physics Continuing Education Credits (MPCEC).

Evaluation

To be eligible to receive continuing education credit, attendees must complete the online evaluation by Monday, March 19, 2018. To access your evaluation, log into ASTRO Academy with your ASTRO credentials. Please only evaluate the sessions you attended.

Certificates of Credit

CME certificates of credit are only available to participants who have completed the online evaluation tool. Participants will have online access to their certificate upon completion of the evaluation. Participants can access, print and save their certificate from ASTRO Academy.

Physicist attendees will not receive certificates of credit from ASTRO. The names of physicist attendees will be sent to CAMPEP 45 days after the meeting.

Disclosure of Vested Interest

ASTRO is an accredited provider of continuing medical education. Since our accreditation is important to us, we plan activities that are compliant with the ACCME and the content or format of CME activities and related materials will promote improvements or quality in health care and not a specific proprietary business interest or commercial bias. Planning Committee members and speakers are required to disclose the existence of any financial or other relationship with the manufacturer(s) or any commercial product(s) or provider(s) of any commercial services discussed in an educational presentation.

Any conflicts of interest are resolved prior to participation. In addition to written disclosure, presenters will disclose any vested interest or their intention to discuss off-label use of pharmaceuticals or devices, if applicable, to the audience at the beginning of their presentation and in accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education standards and the Food and Drug Administration requirements.

In an effort to increase transparency and easy access to all disclosures, faculty, committee and presenter disclosure information will be available online for the 2018 Multidisciplinary Head and Neck Cancers Symposium. In addition to being available online, disclosure slides will be shown at the beginning of each session. Disclosure information will not be printed in paper versions of the meeting materials.

Disclaimer

ASTRO is committed to the free exchange of medical education. Inclusion of any presentation in this program, including presentations of off-label uses, does not imply an endorsement by ASTRO of the uses, products or techniques presented.
