Note: SESAP 15 Audio Companion is not a recitation of the SESAP 15 Print Syllabus.

American College of Surgeons Disclosure Policy
In accordance with the ACCME’s Accreditation Criteria, the American College of Surgeons must ensure that anyone in a position to control the content of this enduring material has disclosed all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest. Therefore, it is mandatory that both the program planning committee and speakers complete disclosure forms. Members of the planning committee were required to disclose all financial relationships and speakers were required to disclose any financial relationship as it pertains to the content of the presentations. The ACCME defines a ‘commercial interest’ as “any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients”.  It does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests.  The ACCME considers “relevant” financial relationships as financial transactions (in any amount) that may create a conflict of interest and occur within the 12 months preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the educational activity.
The ACCME also requires that ACS manage any reported conflict and eliminate the potential for bias during the session.  The planning committee members and speakers were contacted and the conflicts listed below have been managed to our satisfaction.  However, if you perceive a bias, please advise us of the circumstances on the evaluation form. 
The requirement for disclosure is not intended to imply any impropriety of such relationships, but simply to identify such relationships through full disclosure, and to allow the learners to form its own judgments regarding the presentation.
