    CME Review

    CRF’s CME committee will review your presentation for ACCME compliance.
    CRF is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. As a result, CRF must ensure that CME activities are developed free from the control of ineligible companies and are balanced, objective, and scientifically rigorous. As such, disclosure forms, learning objectives, audience response questions, presentation reviews, or other measures are requested in advance of the meeting to satisfy our accreditation requirements.
    Important: ACCME now requires 24 months of disclosure information.
