Some prescient advice for implementing the new Standards

I hesitated to read Steve Passin's column in the latest issue of Medical Meetings on implementing the new Standards of Commercial Support, since it was written well before ACCME released them this week, along with documents explaining what the organization would and would not accept as resolutions for conflicts of interest.

But I read it, and he did a great job of explaining the steps to take--even without seeing the supporting documents. It's good advice for any ACCME-accredited provider who's pondering putting the new Standards into effect.
