A list of disclosures will be published.
Commercial Interest: The ACCME defines a “commercial interest” as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services used on or consumed by patients. Providers of clinical services directly to patients are NOT included in this definition.
Financial Relationships: Relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected. ACCME considers relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner.
Conflict of Interest: Circumstances create a conflict of interest when an individual has an opportunity to affect CME content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.
The ACCME also requires that ACS manage any reported conflict and eliminate the potential for bias during the educational activity. Any conflicts noted below have been managed to our satisfaction. The disclosure information is intended to identify any commercial relationships and allow learners to form their own judgments. However, if you perceive a bias during the educational activity, please report it on the evaluation.

Abstracts Submission Dates: Call for abstracts: Jan 1, 2022. Deadline to submit 3/1/22: Selections determined (Note: ACS CME guidelines require the meeting's CME app to be turned in 90 days out).
General Guidelines: Due to the combined nature of the meeting, there will undoubtedly be greater competition for abstract slots. In order to accommodate as many presentations as possible, the bipartisan Abstract Review Committee will review all submitted abstracts. Approximately 24-30 will be selected. The format is described on our online abstract submission form. Abstracts are limited to 250 words.
Self Assessment: Presenters should provide two multiple choice questions related to their abstract for self assessment. Give four possible answers and indicate which is the correct answer. Presenters should refer to the questions at the meeting. Note: Please do not use "ALL OF THE ABOVE" or "NONE OF THE ABOVE." You may submit 1 case-based question.
Disclosures: All presenters must make a disclosure statement at the start of the abstract presentation and complete an ACS disclosure form, available on the abstract online form.
