All relevant financial relationships were mitigated by the program committee prior to the activity.

The intent of this disclosure is to allow the Texas Orthopaedic Association (TOA) the opportunity to mitigate any relevant financial relationships to assure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor in all of its CME activities. All faculty and planners of TOA-sponsored activities are expected to disclose to TOA all financial relationships with any ineligible company within the prior 24 months.

An indication of the participant’s disclosure appears after his or her name as does the ineligible company or institution that provided the support.

The Texas Orthopaedic Association (TOA) does not view the existence of these disclosed interests or commitments as necessarily implying bias or decreasing the value of the author’s participation at the meeting.

Ineligible company: any entity whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.

Examples of financial relationships:

• Employee

• Researcher

• Consultant

• Advisor

• Speaker

• Independent Contractor (Including Contracted Research)

• Royalties or Patent Beneficiary

• Executive Role

• Ownership Interest

Individual stocks and stock options should be disclosed; diversified mutual funds do not need to be disclosed. Research funding from ineligible companies should be disclosed by the principal or named investigator even if that individual’s institution receives the research grant and manages the funds.

This meeting is designed to identify areas of recent research in emergency medicine relevant to EMS medical directors. This information will be transmitted through scientific paper presentations, question and answer sessions, presentations on surgical techniques and current concepts and symposiums.

A need for this educational activity has been determined based on focus groups consisting of EMS medical directors.
