Molecular Profiling to Guide Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery (C) (No CME)
This session has been identified and designated as Credit to Meet ACS Accreditation/Verification Requirements for Cancer.
The science of molecular profiling is moving along at a pace at which surgeons may have a difficult time maintaining a relevant and working knowledge. Understanding the fundamental aspects of this topic can help surgeons stay abreast of ongoing discoveries and also remain well versed in their interactions with their nonsurgical peers. Furthermore, a strong working knowledge of this topic can allow surgeons to recognize when genomic profiling may be of greatest benefit to their patients. Having an understanding of topics such as fundamental differences between genomics and proteomics, whole exome sequencing, the cancer genome atlas, and the role of genomic profiling guiding therapy in lung cancer and esophageal cancer, as well as favorably altering outcomes associated with cardiac surgery, can be a potentially useful body of knowledge.

In accordance with the ACCME Accreditation Criteria, the American College of Surgeons, as the accredited provider of this activity, must ensure that anyone in a position to control the content of the educational activity has disclosed all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest. Therefore, it is mandatory that both the program planning committee and speakers complete disclosure forms. Members of the program committee and speakers were required to disclose all financial relationships. The ACCME defines a ‘commercial interest’ as “any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients”. It does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests. The ACCME considers “relevant” financial relationships as financial transactions (in any amount) that may create a conflict of interest and occur within the 12 months preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the educational activity.
The ACCME also requires that ACS manage any reported conflict and eliminate the potential for bias during the session. The planning committee members and speakers were contacted and the conflicts listed below have been managed to our satisfaction. However, if you perceive a bias during a session, please advise us of the circumstances on the session evaluation form.
Please note we have advised the speakers that it is their responsibility to disclose at the start of their presentation if they will be describing the use of a device, product, or drug that is not FDA approved or the off-label use of an approved device, product, or drug or unapproved usage.
The requirement for disclosure is not intended to imply any impropriety of such relationships, but simply to identify such relationships through full disclosure, and to allow the audience to form its own judgments regarding the presentation.
A Certificate of Completion will be awarded.
