Speaker Disclosure Slide

All presenters are required to include the Speaker Disclosure Slide in their presentations. If you do not include this in your presentation prior to arriving onsite, you will be required to insert it in the speaker ready room.  

Generic and Trade Names

  • Presentations must give a balanced view of therapeutic options.
  • Faculty will be asked to use generic names to contribute to this impartiality.
  • If trade names are used, those of several companies should be used rather than only that of a single supporting company.

Unlabeled Uses of Products

When an unlabeled use of a commercial product, or an investigational use not yet approved for any purpose is discussed during an educational activity the speaker should disclose that the product is not labeled for the use under discussion or that the product is still investigational.

Photography & Social Media Policy

The ATC welcomes attendees to take photographs during the event with personal mobile devices for non-commercial purposes. Live tweeting and sharing of meeting content (such as slides, posters, and exhibitor information) on social media as a way to share information is also permitted.

If a speaker does not wish to have his or her session or research photographed or shared via social networks, the speaker will make an announcement before the presentation.

The ATC strongly encourages compliance with speaker requests regarding photography, audio/video recording, livestreaming, and social media sharing.
