CME Independent Review

As an ACCME-accredited provider of CME, the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) is committed to ensuring fair balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all of its sponsored programs. As such, CRF’s CME Committee and the CTO 2020 Course Directors, elected CVI Philadelphia (www.cviphiladelphia.org) to provide an independent review of the program as designed by the CTO 2020 Course Directors for balance, objectivity, and clinical relevance, including documentation of the conflicts of interest of the planners. CVI Philadelphia’s independent reviewers documented that the activity materials were fair, balanced, and free of commercial bias regarding commercial supporters or their products that will be discussed at CTO 2020 as of February 5, 2020. 

CVI Philadelphia is not involved in the planning or execution of this CME Activity, and its reviewers do not have a relationship with any commercial interest supporting CTO 2020.
