‐ Aug 18, 2023 2:30pm

Learning Objectives

As a result of participating in this activity, learners will be better able/better-able to:

  • identify patients with refractory painful diabetic neuropathy who are likely to benefit from FDA-approved interventional procedures

Accreditation & Designation

Neurovations Education is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Neurovations Education designates this live activity for a maximum of 0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This activity includes discussions of unlabeled or investigational uses of commercial and/or developmental products.

This activity includes discussions and explorations of new and evolving topics. Such inclusion includes adequate justifications of statements based upon current science, evidence and clinical reasoning.

Disclosure of Financial Relationships & Measures to Resolve of Conflicts of Interest

Presenter: Taissa Cherry discloses the following financial relationships: Research: Nevro [relationship has ended over 24 months ago], Boston Scientific [relationship has ended over 24 months ago]

No other person with control of, or responsibility for, the planning, delivery, or evaluation of accredited continuing education has, or has had within the past 24 months, financial relationship(s) to disclose with ineligible companies whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.

All relevant financial relationships have been mitigated. Materials were reviewed in advance of the activity by person(s) that do not have conflicts of interest related to the content. In some cases, content may have been modified as part of the review and mitigation process. All clinical recommendations are evidence-based and free of commercial bias (e.g., peer-reviewed literature, adhering to evidence-based practice guidelines).
