Weekly Compliance Tips

For journal-based CME, do we need to collect information about relevant financial relationships from the authors (in addition to identifying, resolving, and disclosing those relevant relationships?)

For journal-based CME activities, the ACCME does not have the expectation of providers identifying and disclosing to learners the relevant financial relationships of the article's authors or editors - in fact, this process should be handled by the journal editors.  The responsibility of the CME provider is to identify, resolve, and disclose relevant financial relationships for the planners and any individuals involved in choosing the article and writing the evaluation mechanism.


Because of COVID-19, has the ABIM suspended their peer review requirement for activities related directly to the pandemic?

The ABIM has temporarily suspended this requirement (peer review) through December 31, 2020, but for COVID-19 accredited activities only.  The ABIM cites this temporary policy on the webpage:

Due to the extraordinary circumstances of the current pandemic, ABIM will not require an additional MOC peer review for COVID-19 activities beyond what accredited providers are already doing to meet ACCME Criteria 2, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 10.  While ABIM affirms the general value of peer review, we recognize that it may not be feasible at this time.  ABIM will therefore not require the MOC peer review for COVID-19 activities through the end of 2020, in order to expedite getting the latest information to physicians.
