Disclosures & Relevant Financial Relationships

The American Psychiatric Nurses Association requires individuals in a position to control content of accredited education to disclose all relevant financial relationships with ineligible companies over the past 24 months. Ineligible companies are those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, reselling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients. Financial relationships of any dollar amount are defined as relevant if the educational content is related to the business lines or products of the ineligible company. The identification of relevant financial relationships does not necessarily mean the recusal of individuals from participating in this educational activity. Rather, accreditation standards require that relevant financial relationships are mitigated prior to the start of the activity. This requirement is intended to prevent all those with relevant financial relationships from inserting commercial bias or influence into educational content. The following individuals have indicated a relevant financial relationship with ineligible companies over the past 24 months, and/or will be discussing drugs or products during their session other than that for which it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Relevant Financial Relationships

No one with the ability to control content of this activity, with the exception of those listed below, have relevant financial relationships with ineligible companies to disclose. All of the relevant financial relationships listed for these individuals have been mitigated.
