How do you select topics?

Our medical editors select topics based on news worthiness, plenary sessions and late breakers during conferences. We will not discuss off-label use of therapies in clinical settings out of the context of conferences. If a therapy is being discussed beyond guidelines, then it will be mentioned in the program.

How do you select your guests and/or speakers?

Guests and speakers are selected based on their knowledge and/or expertise with the topic.

Do you financially compensate your guests?

We do not compensate our guest that appear in our news programs. Only out of pocket expenses, such as taxi, are compensated. Guests, writers who are actively involved in producing programs are compensated for the time they spend on developing a course. The amount compensated is aligned with the code of conduct as described in the terms of each educational grant.
