I. Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest

The 3rd WFNO/the 6th ASNO is committed to ensuring the integrity of its scientific, educational, and research programs and offering the best continuing medical education in neuro-oncology. Disclosure of conflicts of interest helps maintain the integrity of the information presented at the 2009 WFNO/ASNO meeting. To help support this effort, WFNO/ASNO requires that all meeting presenters honor the WFNO/ASNO Conflict-of-Interest Policy. This policy requires disclosure of any financial or other interest that might be construed as resulting in an actual, potential, or apparent conflict.

Additionally, WFNO/ASNO abides by rules formulated by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), which require presenters to disclose possible conflicts both verbally and in writing. As a presenter, this means you must disclose any relevant financial relationships you or your spouse/partner has had within the past 12 months. For this purpose, "relevant financial relationships" are those from which you or your spouse/partner have received or may received financial benefit and which are related to annual meeting CME content.

By submitting a disclosure, you agree that you have read WFNO/ASNO Conflict-of-Interest Policy and understand and support its intent. To ensure full disclosure and proper preparation of your presentation, please review the following information according to your presentation format (PowerPoint or Poster).

  PowerPoint Presentations

  WFNO/ASNO rules session chairs and speakers to include conflict-of-interest disclosure slides in their presentations and inform audiences of any conflicts verbally. In addition, WFNO/ASNO requires its faculty to disclose to the audience any discussion of off-label use of a drug or medical device in their presentation. This promotes transparency and understanding in practice. If these requirements are not met, the presentation may be stricken from the program.

When preparing your PowerPoint presentation, be sure to include a disclosure slide immediately after your title slide. If you have nothing to disclose, a statement to that effect, "There are no relevant conflicts of interest to disclose," should be included on the slides and sated in your presentation, consisting of 1st slide: Title; 2nd slide: Conflict-of-interest disclosure slide; 3rd slides Presentation contents.

  Poster Presentations

  First authors must list conflicts of interest for themselves and all co-authors on the bottoms of the poster.
If an author has nothing to disclose, his or her statement should read, "I have not relevant conflicts of interest to disclose." If none of the authors of the absence have relevant conflicts of interest to disclose, the statement should read, "There are no relevant conflicts of interest to disclose," to be followed in the same manner as described above.
