Through this process Baptist Health identifies and, when applicable, resolves conflicts of interest of all individuals in a position to control or influence CME content, including faculty, conference directors, planners, content reviewers, CME Committee members and the CME Department staff. The CME Department is responsible for content review and, when necessary, makes modifications to resolve conflicts of interest so final presentations are fair and un-biased.
