Research To Practice is committed to providing its participants with high-quality, unbiased and state-of-the-art education. We assess potential conflicts of interest with faculty, planners and managers of CME activities. Real or apparent conflicts of interest are identified and resolved by a peer review content validation process. The content of each activity is reviewed by both a member of the scientific staff and an external independent reviewer for fair balance, scientific objectivity of studies referenced and patient care recommendations.

The scientific staff and consultants for Research To Practice are involved in the development and review of content for educational activities and report the following real or apparent conflicts of interest for themselves (or their spouses/partners) that have been resolved through a peer review process:
