The Center for Nursing Leadership is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the South Carolina Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Approximately 5 contact hours will be awarded upon successful completion of this program, of which approximately 1 hour is pharmacology content.

The Center for Nursing Leadership works to ensure that all programs are presented without bias from any speaker, facilitator or program planner, that no products will be endorsed as a part of this program and no discussion of off-label use of any product will be discussed within this program.  Conflict of interest is defined as any relationship of a financial, professional, or personal nature that may bias a person’s ability to objectively participate in the planning or implementation of a learning activity.  All planners and presenters/content specialists are required to complete conflict of interest disclosures.  The nurse planner(s) for the event is accountable for reviewing these disclosures, validating that no conflict of interest exists, or determining how resolution of the conflict will be achieved, if appropriate.  Having a conflict of interest does not preclude a person from serving as a planner, presenter, and/or content specialist.  However, disclosure and resolution assure that the learner will receive unbiased information.

No conflict of interest was identified for this program.  The presenters, facilitators and planners have disclosed no relevant financial relationships with any commercial interests pertaining to this activity.  There is no commercial support for this program.
