ACCME wants to know—logos in commercial support disclosures, in or out?

The Accreditation Council for CME's latest e-newsletter included a call for comment about a proposal that would require disclosures to commercial support to omit logos and any mention of corporate divisions. Current policy around Standard 6 of the Standards for Commercial Support—under which providers must disclose commercial support sources to learners—says its OK to use logos and slogans in CS disclosures as long as they don't promote specific products. ACCME's chief executive explains more about it in this podcast, if you want to learn more.

Deadline for responses is June 6.

Update: Wow, it never occurred to me someone would take this spin on the proposal—ACCME Seeks to Hide Drug Company Disclosures in the Fine Print, from the Carlat Psychiatry Blog.
