How to disclose your COI
If there is any COI, the oral presenter should use the disclosure slide to present COI after the title slide, in order to clarify the names of companies and/or associations in question. If there is no COI, the presenter should indicate ‘I/We have no financial relationships to disclose.' as such on the sample slide.
If there is any COI, the poster presenter should disclose the names of companies and/or associations in question at the bottom area of the poster. If there is no COI, the presenter should indicate ‘I/We have no financial relationships to disclose.’ as such on the sample slide.
COI disclosure slide samples
If the lead presenter is the responsible researcher, choose the sample slide 1. If the lead presenter is NOT the responsible researcher, choose the sample slide 2 and prepare each COI disclosure slide on behalf of the responsible researcher.
