It is the policy of the AAFP that all CME planning committee/faculty/authors/editors/staff disclose relationships with commercial entities upon nomination/invitation of participation. Disclosure documents are reviewed for potential conflict of interests and, if identified, they are resolved prior to confirmation of participation. Only these participants who have no conflict of interest or who agree to an identified resolution process prior to their participation were involved in this CME activity. Ms. Rubeck and Dr. Spikol returned disclosure forms indicating that they have no financial interest in or affiliation with any commercial supporter or provider of any commercial services discussed in this educational material.
