How do I claim credit?

Associated with each educational activity for which credit is offered is an activity evaluation and/or post‐test. In conjunction with the evaluation/post‐test, learners are provided the opportunity to claim credit for their participation in the activity. All live meeting evaluations are sent electronically, via email, immediately following the activity.

All internet activity evaluations also include a post‐test component that requires the learner to answer a percentage of the questions correctly, based on the content presented in the activity. The internet activity evaluation and post‐test are available upon the conclusion of the activity.

What is SGO’s process for identifying and resolving conflicts of interest?

An important element of ACCME compliance is disclosing and resolving any conflicts of interest between a speaker or individual involved in the educational planning process and a commercial interest. SGO Council-approved policies state that all individuals participating in a CME activity or in a position to affect the educational content development must disclose all financial relationships via the SGO Financial Disclosure Form. All financial relationships will be resolved through a mechanism outlined in SGO’s ACCME Conflict of Interest Resolution policy.
