Course Description

The Doheny/Stein Case Conference is a unique program which will address the need for retina specialists to meet annually and share their current knowledge and expertise on the diagnosis and treatment of common and rare retinal diseases. The case presentation forum provides the opportunity for retina specialists to be updated on the most current practices for the optimal management of medical and surgical retinal disorders. In this unique format, through well illustrated case presentations and robust discussions, experts will share insightful anecdotes and review ongoing and recently completed research studies and major advances in the field of medical retinal disease and surgery to improve evaluation and management of retinal and macular disease. This conference will therefore provide a broad review and update of important concepts, both new and established, that are critical for the optimal evaluation and management of patients with retinal disease in the modern era of advanced retinal imaging and therapeutics.

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
