The Heart Rhythm Society is committed to the provision of Continuing Medical Education (CME) that is balanced, objective, and evidence-based. The Heart Rhythm Society adheres to the Standards for Commercial Support (SCS) of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) which requires that those individuals in a position to control the content of an educational activity (including planners, faculty, authors, committee members, content reviewers, editors, and staff) disclose all relevant financial relationships (for self and for spouse/partner) with an ACCME-defined commercial interest within the 12 months prior to the disclosure.



Heart Rhythm Society takes steps to assure its learners and the public that the content of certified activities is accurate and reliable. The following principles are applied to the process of validating CME content. The content is peer-reviewed to ensure the following:

  • Fair Balance - that content is balanced among various options available for treatment and not biased toward a particular product or manufacturer.
  • Patient Treatment Recommendations - that patient treatment recommendations contained in the content are evidence-based, are appropriate for the target audience, and that the patient treatment recommendations contribute to overall improvement in patient care.
  • Scientific Validity - that scientific studies cited in the activity conform to standards accepted by the scientific community.
  • Learning Objectives - that the educational content supports the learning objectives of the activity, and that the objectives stated for performance-in-practice are actionable and measurable.
  • Omission and Commission - are there any studies, data, or best evidence that is missing?


This enduring activity is supported in part by a grant from Boston Scientific Corporation.
