Disclosures

Please note that all presentations and e-posters must include a slide listing all of the author(s)' financial disclosures with commercial interests.

Product Name Use Policy

SRS strongly prefers that pharmaceuticals and proprietary software/databases as well as surgical approaches or specific instrumentation such as “Surgimap, MIMICS, EOS Imaging, ROTEM, Isola, TSRH, CD, XLIF, DLIF, AxiaLIF, Solera, Vertex, Expedium, Mountaineer, Shilla, VEPTR etc.,” are not used in presentations. These terms should be replaced by a generic term or description of the drug, software/database and/or instrumentation or technique unless the use of the term directly impacts learners’ understanding of the presentation or data. Instrumentation may also be referred to when the device name is a landmark system that is no longer sold (i.e. Harrington, Cotrel-Dubousset, Luque).

Company names and logos may not be used in any presentation (including in images) at IMAST.

It is recognized that studies evaluating a device or devices or comparing different devices or techniques may require the use of product or technique names. If a device trade name or industry developed technique using a trademarked name are used in an abstract or presentation, it will be specifically reviewed by the CME Committee for evaluation of any potential conflict of interest. When there is a known potential conflict of interest, an expanded verbal disclosure will be necessary at the time of presentation. Furthermore, if a product name is mentioned, the audience should be informed of why it is necessary to give the name.

Please notify us at cme@srs.org if you plan to use a product name in your presentation.

Non-Exclusive License and Attestation

Podium & E-Poster Presenters

A Non-Exclusive License and Attestation Form must be completed in the Speaker Management System. Podium and e-poster presenters will be prompted to complete this form upon logging in to accept their presentation(s).

Both a Non-Exclusive License Form and Attestation Form must be completed in the Speaker Management System.  Faculty will be prompted to complete these forms upon logging in to accept their presentation(s).

Final Program

Abstracts will be published in the final program as originally submitted. Any corrections to the title or author listing are no longer being accepted. SRS cannot make edits or additions to the abstract text.

CME Accreditation Policies
