Challenge of the week

Here's our first challenge of the week (this time, from an anonymous specialty society CME provider):

"Our CME committee is all volunteer, and we already ask so much of them. Now the updated Standards for Commercial Support requires us to ask them to disclose their financial relationships, which some find insulting. On top of that, we'd also like them to take on more of the peer review to ensure presentations are evidence-based. Any advice on how to soothe the ruffled feathers while generating enthusiasm for taking on more responsibilities?"

If you have some advice to share, or a challenge of your own, please-mail me at [email protected] or post your thoughts by clicking on the "comments" button below.
