Conflicts of interest document "temporarily unavailable"

If you've tried to download the Identifying and Resolving Conflicts of Interest document from the ACCME Web site lately, this is what you'll see:

Identifying and Resolving Conflicts of Interest (temporarily unavailable)

As an alert reader e-mailed me, "Hum? What is up with this?" Some people may be wondering if it was pulled because it was not formally approved by ACCME's parent organizations, as was required for the Standards themselves. When I asked, ACCME said that they're "working on updating" the document, and that it should be back up in a week or two. Interesting, eh? Now I'm curious to see what changes they'll be making to the original, which was received with much dismay and angst...

(Thanks to Marcy for the heads-up.)
