CME Discloser Policy

The ultimate goal of the Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (ICAAP’s) CME program is to support life-long learning of participants so they may better identify their personal educational needs and design appropriate self-directed learning activities to meet those needs while implementing new skills in clinical practice. ICAAP’s CME program aims to provide relevant education for pediatric care providers to develop, maintain, and improve the necessary competencies, skills, and professional performance needed to provide high quality care for children. ICAAP establishes forums for the dissemination of information on current issues facing the specialty as a means for transmitting research and scholarly findings that affect the practice of pediatrics. ICAAP seeks to provide quality education that is relevant, accessible, and effective in addressing gaps in learning related to pediatric practice.

This policy is designed to ensure all ICAAP CME activities are objective, balanced, and free of bias by identifying and resolving all potential conflicts of interest prior to an activity.
