I keep hearing the phrase: “Commercial Interest”. What does this mean?

According to the ACCME’s Standards for Commercial Support, a commercial interest is: “Any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients.”

For more information about what a commercial interest is or isn’t, visit the ACCME’s webpage here:
