Continuing Education Credits
The American Society for Radiation Oncology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
ASTRO designates this live activity for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
An application to the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Program (CAMPEP) will be submitted for Medical Physics Continuing Education Credits (MPCEC).
To be eligible to receive continuing education credit, attendees must complete the online evaluation by Monday, March 19, 2018. Personalized links were sent to the email address on file from attendees' registration (please contact Natalie Cain if you did not receive your link). Please only evaluate the sessions you attended.
Certificates of Credit
CME certificates of credit are only available to participants who have completed the online evaluation tool. Participants who complete the evaluation within 30 days will have online access to their certificate 45 days post-meeting. Participants can access, print and save their certificate from the My ASTRO page of the ASTRO website. Participants who do not complete their evaluations within 30 days must contact ASTRO to receive their certificate.
Physicist attendees will not receive certificates of credit from ASTRO. The names of physicist attendees will be sent to CAMPEP 45 days after the meeting.
Disclosure of Vested Interest
ASTRO is an accredited provider of continuing medical education. Since our accreditation is important to us, we plan activities that are compliant with the ACCME and the content or format of CME activities and related materials will promote improvements or quality in health care and not a specific proprietary business interest or commercial bias. Planning Committee members and speakers are required to disclose the existence of any financial or other relationship with the manufacturer(s) or any commercial product(s) or provider(s) of any commercial services discussed in an educational presentation.
Any conflicts of interest are resolved prior to participation. In addition to written disclosure, presenters will disclose any vested interest or their intention to discuss off-label use of pharmaceuticals or devices, if applicable, to the audience at the beginning of their presentation and in accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education standards and the Food and Drug Administration requirements.
In an effort to increase transparency and easy access to all disclosures, faculty, committee and presenter disclosure information will be available online for the 2018 Multidisciplinary Head and Neck Cancers Symposium. In addition to being available online, disclosure slides will be shown at the beginning of each session. Disclosure information will not be printed in paper versions of the meeting materials.
ASTRO is committed to the free exchange of medical education. Inclusion of any presentation in this program, including presentations of off-label uses, does not imply an endorsement by ASTRO of the uses, products or techniques presented.
