Course Director’s Review of Relevant Financial Relationships

Course directors must review and approve/reject every speaker’s relevant financial disclosures. The CME RSS system will ask the course director whether or not they approve the speaker and whether or not a conflict exists. If the course director indicates that there is a potential for conflict, additional fields will appear, enabling the course director to easily document what steps he/she will take to actively resolve that conflict. Below is an example of the email that a course director will receive.

A Course Director will be prompted to their dashboard on the RSS website. This dashboard displays all Disclosure information the course director has reviewed and needs to review. The red box highlights the section that houses disclosure forms awaiting a Course Director’s approval. Click the green folder to review.
