Meeting Objective/Target Audience
The objective of the ASIP 2011 AJP CME Program in Pathogenesis is to increase basic and applied pathology knowledge, focusing on the pathogenesis, diagnosis, prognosis, and the treatment of disease. The ASIP 2011 AJP CME Program in Pathogenesis is designed to meet the participants' education needs in the physician competency area of Medical Knowledge, as defined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), and to support participants' lifelong learning towards a goal of promoting patient safety and improving patient care. The program is specifically targeted to trainees, clinicians and researchers investigating mechanisms of disease who wish to advance their knowledge of the cellular and molecular biology of disease.
At the completion of the ASIP 2011 AJP CME Program in Pathogenesis, participants should be able to:
|1.||discuss the research underway and/or current molecular approaches to decipher the pathogenesis of disease;|
|2.||demonstrate a gained level of knowledge of the methods and techniques being used by researchers and practitioners;|
understand the link between pathogenesis and the development of new diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic approaches to infectious diseases (including bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic pathogens), to inherited diseases and syndromes, and to acquired diseases and syndromes spanning systems biology (including cardiovascular, pulmonary, renal, gastrointestinal, immunopathology, matrix biology, metabolic and endocrine pathobiology, musculoskeletal, neurologic, and vascular biology).
The Federation requires that participants in FASEB-sponsored educational programs be informed of the organizers' and the presenters' (speaker, faculty, author, or contributor) academic and professional affiliation, and the existence of any relevant financial relationship an organizer or a presenter has with any proprietary entity producing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on patients, with the exemption of non-profit or government organizations and non-health care related companies. The intent of this disclosure is not to prevent a presenter from providing educational content but allows the participant to be fully knowledgeable in evaluating the information being presented.
Disclosure includes any relationship that may bias one's presentation or which, if known, could give the perception of bias. These situations may include, but are not limited to: 1) stock options or bond holdings in a for-profit corporation or self-directed pension plan; 2) research grants; 3) employment (full or part-time); 4) ownership or partnership; 5) consulting fees or other remuneration; 6) non-remunerative positions of influence such as officer, board member, trustee, or public spokesperson; 7) receipt of royalties; 8) speaker's bureau; 9) other. For full-time employees of industry or government, the affiliation listed in the Program/Article will constitute full disclosure.
None of the organizers of this educational activity disclosed a relevant financial relationship. Relevant financial relationships of the authors of selected articles in this journal CME program will be disclosed in a footnote to the published article and in each examination.
